In a bid to reclaim the league title that they have not won in the past two seasons, KCCA continue to make squad changes.
The Kasasiro are arguably one of the busiest sides in the division and have on top of former signings added Benjamin Ochan.
Ochan returns to Lugogo for a third stint having played for the side in 2008, 20016 and now 2021.
He will vie for the number one spot with namesake Derrick Ochan who joined from Police and academy graduate Ali Mwirusi.
