“As a club, we are happy to have own back at the club. He is a legend not only here but for the Cranes after playing at top level for over 12 years and we believe his experience will strengthen the club,” Kasingye said.

Kasingye said by signing of Mawejje, the team is on the road back to its glory days that saw them win the 2005 UPL title but also win the CECAFA cup the following year.
