Brian Majwega completed his second home-coming when he was unveiled as KCCA’s latest signing on Monday at Phillip Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.
And the Cranes winger was quick out of the blocks about his feelings on returning to a home he left to join Tanzania’s Azam and later Simba in 2014 and 2016 respectively before acrimoniously falling out with both.
“I’m now a grown up man,” Majwega, in his mid-20s, said before hoisting his number 19 jersey, “With a wife and kid. Therefore I’m living a responsible life.”
Majwega, who first joined KCCA in 2009 and won two league trophies with the club under coach George Nsimbe, has been handed a two-year deal.
“I have rejoined KCCA because they honed my talent, have players that can win trophies and I believe I can use this opportunity as a springboard to play for Uganda Cranes again,” he added, rather repentantly.
Majwega last played for the national team in the 2-0 home win over Botswana in June last year at Namboole.
He will hope to impress KCCA manager Mike Mutebi before attracting Cranes coach Micho Sredojevic’s attention again, especially with, now, club-mate Joseph Ochaya having established himself on that same wing for the national team.
Majwega admits that although his one-year spell didn’t go as planned at Azam, and later on Simba, he picked a few lessons from the misfortunes and is looking forward to helping KCCA defend the league title and perform well on the continent next season.
“I have been able to play with players from across the continent and worked with international coaches in Tanzania and I want to share this experience with my new colleagues at Lugogo,” he said.
Fifa’s involvement had to be called upon for Majwega to leave Azam, rather acrimoniously, in December 2015 for rivals Simba following a transfer saga that also saw the club suspend him for absconding from duty.
