He was part of the Uganda Cranes training camp in Dubai last month but didn’t make part of the squad to face South Sudan this month after failing to secure a Ugandan passport in time.

He follows the footsteps of left back Jordan Obita, another Ugandan who has previously featured for Reading. Obita is now a free agent after leaving the Royals at the start of the season.
