Waswa Bbosa and Tooro United have finally agreed to renew the tacticians contract by another year.

This comes following weeks of negotiations between the two parties, where they were understood to have hit lots of stumbling blocks.

Despite the differences, many of which revolved around money, the two have agreed that Bbosa will stay at the club until at least June 2020.

Under the stewardship of Bbosa, Tooro United enjoyed their best season (last) in the top flight.

The club finished 4th on the StarTimes Uganda Premier League table with 49 points, their best tally since gaining promotion to the top flight in 2013.

It is understandable why Tooro United have done all they can to keep Bbosa at the helm despite strong interest coming from Vipers SC and Mbarara City.

Bbosa has previously worked with Express FC and SC Villa, the former firing him while he walked away from Villa Park following the expiration of his two-year deal.

In a related development, Tooro have also confirmed a co-club director in the names Spelito Ssesanga.

Ssesanga who is a close friend to Tooro’s owner Smart Obedi is understood to have bought 49% of the club and will immediately start executing his duties.

This was confirmed on Tuesday morning at a press briefing held at Arcacia Mall in Kololo.

“I was here alone and everything used to depend on me, noted Obedi who now owns the remaining 51% shares in Tooro United.

“This is a good move and I believe it is going to help our club move forward.

“This will help the club even in my absence unlike in the past when everything had to depend on my presence.

“There is nothing much we earn from the club. This is football which we are still building and we may earn in years to come.”

Ssesanga noted that he brings new and big ideas on board for development of the club.

He also revealed that he has been a good friend of Obedi for many years.

The club also confirmed Michael Wandera as the new club Chairman. Wandera replacing Peter Emojon.

After the re-structure, Tooeo United is now set to focus on the transfer window as they try to better their 4th place finish last season. They have already lost Allan Kayiwa to Vipers SC and will be eager to replace the forward who scored 10 goals last season.
