Seven years ago, Yunus Ssentamu shot onto the scene with a sensational goal return at the 2014 African Nations Championship (CHAN) in South Africa, netting thrice in four games.

This earned him praise from the football faithful in the country and across the continent. But that was not a surprise for the people who had followed him throughout his high school days at St. Julian School and St. Mary’s Kitende.

His heroics at the tournament brought hope to Uganda, as many thought he was the solution to the national team’s goal-scoring problems and a possible heir to then Cranes captain Geoffrey Massa.

Ssentamu as well earned himself admirers and suitors from across the continent. With a mammoth of options, he chose African giants, Congolese As Vita Club, aged only 19.

It was a move that many expected would bring the best out of the prolific young striker, which would likewise help him elevate his career further.

He made a relatively good start in Congo and played a hand in guiding the Kinshasa based club to the CAF Champions League final, where they lost 3-3 to ES Setif on away goals advantage in 2014.

For USD200,000, he joined Tunisian outfit CS Sfaxien, and suddenly, for unknown reasons, everything changed direction.

After a very unsuccessful stint in Tunisia, he joined Finnish side FC Ilves and endured more misery scoring one goal in 14 appearances.

He made another move in 2017, this time to Albania’s FK Tirana where he spent a year before taking a break from football over unestablished reasons.

The 26-year-old’s career seemed to have hit a dead-end, it all looked destined for a sad, premature end until Vipers knocked at the door.

The opportunity to return to his boyhood club presented itself. The club was always going to take in one of their own, and the boy was open to returning to a place where he is loved and appreciated.

With five games into the 2020/21 StarTimes Uganda Premier League season, Ssentamu was ready to make his mark and certainly revive his career.

It did not take ages before re-introducing himself with an emphatic brace in a 7-0 trumping of MYDA FC in his first game. This marked the start of his road to redemption.

Despite the stiff competition provided by Dan Sserunkuma, Shaban Muhamad, Ceasor Manzoki, Milton Karisa, Richard Bansangwa and others, this gave him more reason to soldier for a regular place in the team.

He would go on to establish himself as a mainstay in Fred Kajoba’s team earning him a recall to the national team for the AFCON qualifiers against Malawi and Burkina Faso in March.

From a boy trying to prove himself, he turned to the team’s most influential player, pushing the Venoms to third with only two points behind eventual champions, Express FC.

Vipers’ shirt no. 12 also topped the league scoring charts with an impressive 16 goals in 22 matches including finding the back of the net twice in the Uganda cup that is still stuck at the semifinal stage.

Seven years since his star shone bright, Ssentamu looks determined to make up for what we missed since that 2014 excitement in South Africa.
