Saddened about the death of this innocent young soul Adubango Rehema, the Kawempe Muslim Women team defender…. Did not know much about her but last evening as I was called by my brother Ronnie Lusulire to come to watch the FUFA Women Elite League playoffs, I got impressed with her display given the fact that she was a defender and so I am.
The football industry has indeed lost a big a talent…. My sincere condolences to the family, friends, relatives, Women footballers and Kawempe Muslim SS…..Until we meet again mate
