Mbarara City Fc has gone on spending spree in preparation for the new season of the Ugandan Premier League (UPL) .
Mbarara City last season survived relegation but reports indicate that the western side has signed former AFC Leopards striker Karim Nduggwa.
Nduggwa made headlines for once playing as a goalkeeper at AFC Leopards in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) in a match against Sofapaka and even going on to save a penalty after financially stricken Leopards failed to raise quorum for the game. Leopards won the match 1 – 0.
The striker has secured a yearlong loan move from second tier side Wakiso Giants, where he had moved to after a short stint with premier league side Onduparaka.
Apart from Wakiso Giants, AFC Leopards and Onduparaka, Nduggwa has also served at Express, URA, Sports Club Villa Jogoo, Sadolin Paints and Victors FC.
He joins his former team mate at Onduparaka, defender Muhammad Rashid while Uganda U20 midfielder Ivan Eyam and Rwandan Noah Habimana have also been brought on board.
At his new team, Nduggwa will also meet a coach he has worked under previously, Charles Livingstone Mbabazi, who took charge in June. The two worked together at Onduparaka before the coach left after one and a half seasons to take up a caretaker role as Kyetume FC, from where he moved to Mbarara City in June.
