The former Vipers SC attacking midfielder, Erisa Sserunkuma has signed a two year contract with the K’Ogalo hence joining the Kenyan giants Gor Mahia .
Club’s deputy Secretary General Ronald Ngala confirmed to Kenya’s website Goal.com the arrival of Ssekisambu and said that the Kenyan team has been spying and trying to convince him to join the team for quite a long period of time.
“We are happy to have signed him (Sekisambu) on a two-year deal. He is a great player with international experience and he will help us do well. We wanted to sharpen our attack and that is why we have gone for him; remember we have chased his signature for some time,”
Ssekisambu contract with the Vipers at expired last season and has currently been looking for a team to play for. This was one of the reasons as to why he was so quick to join the Kenyan giants when called upon. It should be noted that Ssekisambu greatly contributed to the Vipers’ win in the recently concluded Uganda Premier League games that saw him scoring 6 goals for the team.
He joins fellow countryman Shafiq Batambuze who recently signed with Gor Mahia from Tanzanian side Singida United.
Ssekisambu joins the ever-swelling list of Ugandans to have played at the treasured Kenya club whose big following is only challenged by fierce rivals – AFC Leopards.
Other Ugandans who have played at Gor Mahia include David Otti (R.I.P), Dan “Muzeyi” Sserunkuma, Jimmy Bageya, Ivan “Rasta” Anguyo, Khalid Aucho, Geofrey “Baba” Kizito, Godfrey “Jajja Walu” Walusimbi and a Ugandan born Meddie Kagere (now nationalized to play for Rwanda national team) among others.
