Former FUFA boss Muhammad Seruwagi, currently based in North Korea, had this to say about the late Denis Obua:

“I traveled with Obua on many Uganda Cranes trips and I have never seen a great left winger like him. He was exceptional. We are going to miss him and let me assure all Ugandans that we have lost a legend.”

Those of us who witnessed him plying his football skills on the left wing will never forget the joy he brought to us. He was the best left winger and I do not believe we will ever produce anyone like him in that position. Godfrey Kateregga was very good but, he used to have off days. Obua delivered on the pitch all the time every time. RIP the Great Obua.

However, I need you to clarify on a few things; Didn’t Jimmy Kirunda ever play for SC Villa? I noticed in your article that you only mentioned Lint, Express and KCC. Correct me if I’m wrong.

Then again, I’m of the view that former left back Yusuf ‘Kabanzo’ Ssonko deserved a place among the top 10 most versatile players. What’s your take?”

Robert, it’s true Jimmy Kirunda played for SC Villa and I mentioned it in when describing Paul Hasule’s switch from attack to defence.

For Ssonko, he was a right full back and he maintained the same position at SC Villa and the national team even though he used to be switched to the centre at times. The reason I didn’t include him is that much as he was versatile, he played in only one area – defence.

Ted Nalukwago
of Bunga says: “Going by what you wrote about Polly Ouma, his contribution to Ugandan football is tremendous. So, if government can’t assist to raise the money to get him out of prison, why doesn’t FUFA mobilize the soccer public to rescue our legend?

Thanks Ted, hopefully the federation has heard your voice. Already, the ex-internationals have taken the lead and I hope the campaign gets more publicity.
