Busoga United Hands Ali Kimera New Contract

Goalkeeper Ali Kimera has extended his stay with Busoga United FC for one more year, it’s official.

The club has confirmed the news via their social media pages.

“Kimera Ali extends his stay for another year. One of the most experienced goalkeepers in UPL at the moment will be at the Mighty Arena playing for the badge. Thank you for the community and loyalty,” Busoga United FC posted.

The ‘controversial’ goalkeeper joined Busoga United last year from Mbarara City after he was suspended by the Ankole Lions when he was of match fixing following dramatic events in a league game against SC Villa.

Kimera was part of the Uganda Cranes team that participated in the 2014 African Nations Championship (CHAN).

He was Born on July 4th 1994 and has played for Sports Club villa, Victoria University, The Saints, Kenya Revenue Authority, Kyemerine Sugar Football Club and Kano Pillars.

He helped Busoga finish fourth with 42 points last season, competing for a place in goal with Rogers Omedwa who has been linked with a move away from the club ahead of next season.

Busoga has recently made the news for a wrong reason after some players came out to show frustration over unpaid salaries.

The club, on Sunday, said that players arrears are “currently the club’s first obligation and management is fighting tooth and nail to raise funds needed to settle the outstanding due.”

The side recently appointed Andrew Ndyabahika as the new CEO while Media officer Fred Mwambu left his role to pursue “personal ventures.”
