“It is a big honour to play at Gomba Lions since they have won many trophies. My main target as well will be to win the title this year,” Basangwa noted.

Basangwa featured at St Mary’s SS Kitende as they won the 2019 Copa Coca Cola championship hosted in Jinja as well as the East African title.

He joins robust center forward Isaac Ogwang, crafty playmaker Titus Ssematimba and towering defender Ben Nambokho.
