Rashid Toha’s Vipers SC career will forever be remembered for what it could have been as opposed to what it was.
His time at Kitende was cursed with terrible luck and major injuries, one to his anterior cruciate and the other to his knee which meant that his two and half years at the club would see him spend majority of the time on either the treatment table or going through the draining process of rehabilitation.
The talent was always there, and had he enjoyed a clean bill of health and the chance to demonstrate what he did with Onduparaka FC between 2016-2019, then the result of his time with the Venoms would have yielded far more than a few appearances that are logged next to his name in his career.
That withstanding, Vipers SC found it ideal to cut short his stay at Kitende as both parties agreed to part ways under mutual consent.
Toha has since joined new league entrants Arua Hill SC on a two-year deal and now returns to the familiar territory of West Nile albeit with different pay masters.
The South Sudanese international became a household name at Onduparaka FC helping the side gain UPL Promotion in 2016. His stock rose considerably as he became one of the most sought after defenders in local football.
Whilst Vipers SC came calling and lured him to Kitende on a three year deal.
The general consensus however is that the switch to Kongolo, fitness permitting, will act as a launch pad to revive his fading career.
With national team football guaranteed following a change of allegiances to South Sudan, the lanky defender gets a big chance to remind his critics of his talents.
Standing 6 feet 4 in, Toha’s aerial prowess and ability to initiate play from the back are his forte. If given a chance , he is a good free kick taker and scores with the head with consummate ease.
