Lt. Edrine Ochieng, president of Gaddafi Football Club

As the 18 Buganda Masaza teams continue with the backroom preparations prior to the long anticipated kick off of this tournament, there is need to recruit able human resource both in the playing, technical wing and management.

It is therefore based on this firm back ground that each of the teams that have already named their respective teams have identified powerful and useful personnel.

Kyaggwe Ssaza’s quest for their first ever championship has witnessed the county head chief Ssekiboobo Elijah Bogere named a team of tried and tested individuals.

Among these is Gaddafi FC’s president Afande Edrine Ochieng, one gentleman who has single-handedly turned around the fortunes of this Eastern region’s club’s fortunes.
