Gor Mahia have reportedly signed Ugandan attacker Erisa Sekisambu according to a report by blog Kahawatungu.

“It’s a done deal. The paperwork was done online to allow Gor Mahia register him in time for CAF Champions League,” said a club official.

Gor Mahia tried to sign the Ugandan in June but the deal fell through. His listed age is 23. But given that he made his first appearance in the Ugandan league in 2011, that age is questionable.

In Uganda, Sekisambu has played for SC Villa, URA, Express and Vipers. He recently played in the Indian league for Gokulam Kerala.

He would take the place of Ephrem Guikan who despite scoring numerous critical goals, failed to impress coach Dylan Kerr and is thus leaving.

Team manager Jolawi Obondo revealed that the club plans to send some players out on loan.

“We are also planning to loan out four players now that the federation adopted a new rule that permits academy players to feature for the senior team and vice versa. We tend to utilise fully our youth team,” he said to the Nation.

    This is gud. Gor shud utilise this academy team to the max. Recruitment is never 100% perfect. Players come and not all will click. This is why a coach matters. M.Salah was just another ordinary transfer for Liverpool.
    Gor shud change the under 17 to under 19 to allow for more maturity. The main role of the youth team is to act as a feeder.
    The reason why Gor youth is not supplying this talent remains a mistery.
    The problem at Gor is not wether Gor is recruiting young or old, the problem at Gor is the corruption. EC frustrating the club thru’ back-door selling of players, delaying salaries and cheating players off their bonuses, this is the big rot at the club.

    Good..Ugandans are always a welcome addition to Gor (regardless of their football age) but he will probably join in December as he has to clear with India…he is not a free agent. My only concern is now two things..

    1. can we convince soon to be free agent mike madoya to join ? I doubt if nicholas kipkirui will be effective at the club without support of the likes of mike madoya.
    2. can we convince soon to be free agent yunus ssentamu to join ? should that happen probably in late december, then someone will have to give way, francis mustapha ( no disrespect) looks like the likely bet.

      If you sign madoya, where do you expect muguna and kahata to play. The fact that madoya is good does not mean that he is better than muguna or kahata.

    Erisa Keith Ssekisambu scored 16 goals in the 2015-2016 Uganda Premier League. Let us hope he will replicate that at Gor Mahia

    Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions Gor Mahia have signed yet another Ugandan in Erisa Sekisambu who joins the club on a two-year contract a fortnight after Shafik Batambuze joined the KPL giants from Tanzanian side Singinda FC.

    Gor Mahia C.E.O Lordvick Aduda has confirmed that Erisa has joined the side and exuded confidence that the Uganda Cranes forward will boost his side’s striking force ahead of the new season.

    He will be the fifth signing for K’Ogalo after the arrival of Kariobangi Sharks defender Pascal Ogweno, Zoo Kericho’s Nicholas Kipkirui and 2016 KPL player of the year Kenneth Muguna who rejoins the club after a short unfruitful professional stint in Albania

    Delighted

    “Erisa has joined us on a two-year contract and we are delighted to have him in the team. We feel that he will be a great signing that will boost our attacking department as we head into the new season,” he said.

    The 23 year old has previously played for SC Villa, URA, Express FC and VIPERS. He was linked with a move to Indian side, Gokulam Kerala in June 2018; but the move did not materialize. Having been clubless for months, he will be hoping to get his groove back at his new home.

    Erissa Ssekisambu was linked with a move to an indian side that eventually didn’t materialize so he has been unattached for a few months. He is not contracted to any club as a point of correction to a statement above. He signed two years and that then caps our foreign quota slots unless Mustafa Francis makes way for Bonfils Caleb Bimenyimana of Rayon Sports who is by far a better strikercwho can help is in Caf…

    Even Karim is currently playing nothing in Gor Mahia.
    He should be offset before even thinking about Mustaffa.
