Midfielder Jamil Kaliisa has already joined Vipers SC on a four year deal following the expiration of his contract at the club.

Janjali scored six goals and managed five assists as Bright Stars raced for Uganda Premier League safety in the concluded season.

Defender Enock Walusimbi has only four months left on his employment contract pending negotiations of a possible renewal.

There is another uncertainty hovering around the club’s head coach Paul Kiwanuka who is destined for a reunion with Fred Kajoba at Vipers SC.

Bright Stars finished 12th on the 16-team log last season with 29 points collected from 25 games played. The 2020-21 campaign will be Bright Stars’ 8th season in the topflight.
