Last week, Vipers club president Lawrence Mulindwa had expressed interest in signing him back but Namwanja was deeply engaged in talks with Wakiso Giants after a long spell of training with the side.

Other Wakiso Giants signings:

Namwanja becomes the 7th signing of the club following the capture of former Ndejje University goalkeeper Derrick Emukule, Aggrey Madoi, Ivan Sebuguzi, Hassan Senyonjo, Duncan Seninde, and Muwadda Mawejje.

Namwanja and the rest of the Wakiso Giants players will play KCCA in a Pilsner Super 8 contest at their Wakisha fortress next Tuesday.
