  1. This lad is a true professional by Ugandan standards. He stood by SC Villa at the time when almost all players had deserted the 16 time Champions. He went on to gracefully complete his employment contract with the club. Other Ugandan players would just have walked out on the club or forced their way out.
    Ambrose Kirya, wherever you are, May Allah Bless you and the work of your hands!!
