Uganda/Kenya: Wagaluka Joins Kenya Premier League

Kenyan Premier League side Western Stima has signed two Ugandan players ahead of the start of the 2013 League in February.

Ugandan international winger Dan Wagaluka, formerly with Rwandan giants APR FC was first to put pen to paper on a two-year deal. He will be joined by defender Eddy Batambuze. According to Paul Ochieng, the Western Stima team manager, the club is happy about their new acquisitions. He said the two were really impressive during trials and the club couldn't pass the opportunity of bringing them on board.

The team manager added that Wagaluka who also featured for SC Villa and URA FC (Uganda) and Azam in Tanzania before, is expected to bring his vast experience to help the club finish among the top teams. Wagaluka has been playing for Big League side Soana FC. The young Batambuze is the son of former Uganda Cranes winger Eid Batambuze, who featured prominently for SC Villa.
