Muwadda successfully completed medical on Saturday and is expected to team up with the rest of his new teammates on Monday for training.
“I am happy to join the club,” a delighted Muwadda stated after signing the three-year deal.
“It’s a very ambitious side and I am looking forward to furthering my career here and also help them achieve the targets,” he added.
Muwadda struggled to find game time at KCCA last season, featuring as a bit part player.
He is an energetic player with pace and will indeed add value to the Purple Sharks.
Asked about the signing, Wakiso head coach Kefa Kisala was quick to praise Muwadda.
“He brings a lot of experience and his versatility is another thing we hope to exploit,” said Kisala.
Muwadda becomes the fourth signing for Wakiso Giants after the capture of Derrick Emukule, Ivan Ssebuguzi and Aggrey Madoi.
The Purple Sharks are preparing to take part in their maiden top-flight season after attaining promotion from the Big League last season.
