Kasagga who joined Aizawl FC in 2018, had his initial contract expire at the end of the previous campaign.

The development was confirmed by the club’s via the social media platforms that Kasagga alongside Liberian midfielder Alfred Jaryan were rewarded with contract extensions.

Kasagga previously played for Kira Young, URA FC, KCCA FC and Lebanon’s Salaam Zgharta before he joined Aizawl FC where he has been a mainstay since then.
