Wakiso Giants FC have finally signed Lawrence Bukenya on a permanent deal.
The midfielder spent last season on loan at the Purple Sharks from Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) FC.
Following the confirmation that KCCA FC had let go of him-on Sunday, September 13, Wakiso announced his arrival three days later.
It is understood that Bukenya has penned down a three-year deal and he will be a Purple Sharks until 2023.
Speaking on Wednesday, Bukenya noted that he enjoyed the one-year loan stint at Wakiso Giants FC and is keen to achieve with the club.
“I enjoyed my time here last season and i am glad the move has been made permanent. Said Bukenya.
“I feel at home here and want to achieve a lot with this wonderful club at the moment.
“I thank KCCA FC for the time i spent there and wish them all the best.”
Last season, Bukenya was an undisputed starter at Wakiso, scoring just a single goal.
He is a winner of sorts, having won several titles during his five years at KCCA FC.
He becomes the 5th off-season signing for the Purple Sharks, joining the likes of Tom Masiko, Edward Saturo, Pius Kaggwa and Ibrahim Owen Kasule.
The other new faces at Wakiso include Douglas Bamweyana who was appointed head coach and Simon Masaba who will be assistant coach.
In the last campaign, Wakiso Giants finished 10th in the UPL with 30 points from 25 games.
