Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Ismail Watenga has joined Kenyan Premier League side Sofapaka FC.
Sofapaka opted for the former Vipers after failing to sign Togolese custodian N’Guisan Djehani from ASC Kara.
” We are glad to announce the deadline signing of Ugandan international keeper Ismail Abdul Watenga from Ethiopia Coffee.”
Watenga left Uganda for Ethiopia Coffee (Bunna) a year ago but found it hard to acclimatize with the Ethiopian life.
He joins the Batoto Ba Mungu to fill the void left by Burundian custodian Justin Ndikumana who left for Bandari.
Watenga becomes the sixth Ugandan to be unveiled in the recent transfer window. Others are winger Peter Lwasa, defenders Allan Katwe and Musa Malunda, goalkeeper Jimmy Kanakulya and midfielder Muhammad Kasirye.
Sofapaka started off their 2019-20 season with a 2-1 home loss to Posta Rangers last week.
