Following a disappointing performance at the 2011 CHAN tournament, Uganda made their second consecutive African Nations Championship (CHAN) appearance in South Africa in 2014.

This time around, Uganda won their first game at the tournament, defeating Burkina Faso 2-1 in their first Group B game.

A bright start was not enough as a goalless draw against Zimbabwe and a 3-1 defeat to Morocco meant that Uganda crashed out from the group stages.

In this article, Football256’s Herman Nnyanzi traces the whereabouts of the squad that featured for Uganda in the tournament.

Benjamin Ochan

The now 31-year-old shot stopper was playing for SC Victoria University by the time of the tournament. He joined KCCA FC in 2015 and played for them for three seasons.

Ocan featured in another CHAN tournament, starting in goal against Zambia for the Cranes in their first group game at the 2018 edition.

In 2018, he joined Kabwe Warriors in Zambia. He is currently playing for Kenyan Premier League AFC Leopard side since 2019.

Ali Kimera

Kimera was featuring for SC Victoria University by the time of the tournament. Since then, he went on to play for SC Villa, Kenyan Premier League sides Ushuru FC and Chemelil Sugar and The Saints.

Kimera has most recently played for Mbarara City during the 2018/19 season, but a horrific show against SC Villa in a league game at Namboole caused heavy uproar from the club fans, with the club showing him the exit at the end of that season.

He joined Busoga United up to now. Kimera has also ventured into coaching, and guided third tier club Buwambo United to promotion to the FUFA Big League.

Ismail Watenga

Watenga was featuring for Vipers SC at the time of the tournament. He left Vipers in 2018 and joined Ethiopian Coffee Sport Club before a move to Sofapaka FC in Kenya.

He is currently playing for PSL side Chippa United. Watenga was also part of the 2016 and 2018 Uganda Cranes CHAN squads.

Denis Iguma

Iguma who skippered the Ugandan side, was playing for SC Victoria University then after making a reported USD 10,000 move from SC Villa.

Since then, Iguma has played for Al Ahed FC and Bekaa SC in Lebanon as well as Kazma SC in Kuwait and has also played at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.

He is currently playing for KCCA FC and will make his third appearance at CHAN as he is part of the Uganda Cranes squad.

Richard Kasagga

Kasagga was playing for Kiira young by then. He went on to play for Salam Zgharta in Lebanon, KCCA FC, URA FC in Uganda and Aizawl FC in India where he is currently plying his trade.

He was also part of the Uganda Cranes squad that played at the 2016 CHAN finals in Rwanda.

Savio Kabugo

The defender was featuring for SC Victoria University. Kabugo was hugely tipped to be a regular for the Uganda Cranes.

Kabugo indeed showed glimpses of that, scoring the winner against Ghana in an AFCON qualifier at Namboole, but injuries stalled his progress then with a move to South Africa on the cards.

He went on to play for KCCA FC, URA FC, Proline FC, SC Villa and AS Vita Club in DRC and Ethiopian side Sebeta City. He is currently a free agent.

Isaac Muleme

Another SC Victoria defender on the team. Muleme, currently 28, has enjoyed a largely successful career since then.

The left-back went on to feature for SC Villa, KCCA FC, Pyramids FC and El Hodoud SC in Egypt. He is currently playing for FK Viktoria Žižkov in Czech Republic via a brief loan at FC Nitra in Slovakia.

Muleme was part of the Uganda Cranes squad that reached the knockout rounds at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.

Martin Mpuuga

Mpuuga was playing for SC Victoria University. He also had stints at KCCA FC, Police FC and Maroons FC.

Nicholas Wadada

Wadada was at Vipers by then and he played for them until 2018 when he joined Azam FC where he is currently.

He continues to be a regular for the Cranes, earning 51 senior caps and also making the 2018 CHAN squad and has played at both the 2017 and 2019 AFCON tournaments for the Cranes.

Wadada capped a brilliant 2020 for Azam FC as he was voted the defender of the season in Tanzania while he also won the Football256 Player of the Year Award.

Hassan Wasswa

The experienced defender-cum-midfielder was playing for SC Villa by the time of the tournament.

The journey man went on to play for Al-Shorta SC in Iraq, Al-Nejmeh in Lebanon, Al Gaish in Egypt and Jeddah Club in Saudi Arabia.

But he remained a regular for the Cranes until 2019, playing at the AFCON in 2017 and 2019. He is currently without a club.

Ronnie Kisekka

Another defender who was tipped for big things. Kisekka despite his dimnitive size was a warrior and always gave his best on the pitch for his club KCCA at the time.

But maybe he gave a bit too much, and his daunting style of play came back to haunt him as injuries stalled his progress before he was released by KCCA in 2015.

Kisekka has on several occasions tried to rejuvenate his career at several local clubs including Bright Stars, Proline FC and Mbarara City, but has found little success at that. Little is known of his whereabouts currently.

Julius Ntambi

Ntambi was a Kiira Young FC player by then. He went on to have stints at URA FC and Express FC.

Vincent Kayizi

The veteran winger was featuring for Vipers SC by the time. He went on to play for Express FC, KCCA FC before joining Kyetume FC and then captaining the side to their first promotion to the Uganda Premier League.

Ivan Ntege

Ntege was playing for KCCA FC by the time of the tournament. He joined Township Rollers in Botswana before his return to Uganda in 2019 joining URA FC where he is currently.

Brian Majwega

Majwega was featuring for KCCA FC at the time. Due to his superb performances, he earned a move to Tanzanian outfits Azam FC. He then returned to Uganda and featured for Maroons and URA FC.

Saidi Kyeyune

Kyeyune was playing for URA FC and he is still playing for the Tax Collectors. He is also part of Uganda’s 2020 CHAN squad.

Joseph Mpande

Mpande was at Vipers SC by the time and had a promising career but failed to live up to the expectations.

From Vipers, he joined Horizon before moving to Hanthawady United in Myanmar. He currently plays for Hải Phòng in Vietnam.

Allan Kyambadde

Kyambadde was an Express FC player at the time, and impressive performances for the Red Eagles earned him a move to Vipers SC.

But the midfielder struggled at the Venoms and after two seasons, he was released back to Express. After a year at Express, he joined arch rivals SC Villa where he rejuvenated his career.

KCCA came calling and he agreed to a move to Lugogo, helping the club to the 2018/19 league title and also qualification to the CAF Confederations Cup.

Kyambadde also returned to the Cranes fold and was very much involved in Patrick Kaddu’s goal that sealed Cranes’ qualification for the 2019 AFCON. From KCCA, Egyptian club El Gouna captured the midfielder’s signature in 2019.

Yasser Mugerwa

Mugerwa was playing for Victoria University by the time. Since then, he played for URA FC, Orlando Pirates, St. George, Fasil Kenema, Inda Selassie and Sidama Coffee where he is currently.

Simon Okwi

An SC Victoria University player at the time, he went on to feature for KCCA FC, BUL FC, Soana FC, Sofapaka FC, Jimma Aba Buna SC, URA FC and Tooro United.

Patrick ‘Crespo’ Asiku

He was playing for BUL FC by the time. He went on to play for Soana FC, Nairobi Stima, Gaddafi FC before retiring at the end of 2019/2020 season.

Francis Olaki

The 2013/14 league top scorer was playing for Soana FC by the time. He went on to play for FK Tirana, KCCA FC and Extension Gunners FC in Botswana.

Yunus Sentamu

The man of the tournament was playing for Vipers SC at the time. He had a good tournament scoring three goals and this earned him a move to Congo where he featured for AS Vita.

From Congo, he joined Tunisian club CS Sfaxien. Elsewhere, he played for Ilves Tampere in Finland and KF Tirana in Albania. He is currently without a club.
