KCCA striker Caeser Okhuti is expected to play his first game for his home town club on Tuesday after joining Onduparaka on loan from the league’s defending champions.
The striker completed a switch to The Caterpillars on a six-month loan deal that will see him feature for Onduparaka until the end of the first round with an option for extension.
Okhuti, whose breakthrough was in 2007 with Ediofe Hills, has struggled for first team football at Lugogo since the kickoff of the 2016/17 season with Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Derrick Nsibambi preferred.
“It’s always frustrating when you don’t play but am glad to join a team that will offer me first team football,” Okhuti told upl.co.ug.
“It’s a great opportunity to show people I still have goals in me and playing back home gives me more reason to work hard and make the locals happy,” he added.
Okhuti joined KCCA in the middle of last season after scoring eight league goals for Express but has only scored three at Lugogo.
Onduparaka have also acquired the services of attacking midfielder Farouk Kawooya from KCCA on a one-year loan deal.
They have also added Akram Kakembo (Bright Stars), Ivan Mbowa (The Saints) and Dickens Okwir (Sporting United) to their ranks.
Coach Leo Adraa’s side visit fellow necomers Kirinya–Jinja SS in Jinja on Tuesday, a game that could see Okhuti make his second debut.
