  1. Great article.
    Bwogi is such a humble guy and purely hardworking. I fast met him in my first year at makerere university and he invited me to join him in his individual training. Personally am a technically gifted player but meeting Bwogi inspired me to put in more efforts to be established just like him.

  2. Eddie is one of those few defenders that use their brains in the Upl,,,,most are “kawunga” motivated….I won’t give names!!
    Mult-talented and good on both feet
    The sky is the limit
