” I’m Balinya Juma from Uganda. I’m glad to be here in Tanzania. It’s a honor to play for Yanga Sports Club. “
The former Police FC marksman briefly said.
Following a fruitful 2018-19 season, Balinya was linked to a move to Wakiso Giants before Yanga SC tabled an offer for him.
Balinya emerged the topscorer of the concluded Uganda Premeir League season with 19 goals but his two year contract with Police expired.
He has previously played for Vipers, A.S Port in Djibouti, the now defunt Lweza FC before joining Police two years ago.
Balinya will now join Emmanuel Okwi, Diego Hamis Kiiza, Joseph Owino and Steven Bengo as some of the Ugandans to have featured for Yanga Africans.
Yanga Africans are based in Dar es Salaam and host their league games at the National stadium.
They are winners of the Tanzanian league on 27 occasions with their latest coming in the 2016-17 season.
