KAMPALA – Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) FC have completed the signing of Juma Balinya.

His signing was confirmed on Sunday, September 6 via Sanyuka TV, a station which airs KCCA FC TV.
The midfielder turn forward is understood to have signed a three year deal with KCCA FC and is expected to don their colours up until 2023.
After a slow start to his career, Balinya rose to prominence in the 2018/19 season, scoring 19 goals for Police FC, to win the top scorer’s gong in the Uganda Premier League.
