Ochaya valued at Sh1b



Uganda Cranes left-back Joseph Ochaya has just gained more value with the Uganda Premier league MVP award. It is not surprising that KCCA are not about to let their star depart for a cheap.

Club CEO David Tamale told Daily Monitor yesterday that they received an approval letter form South African giants Bidvest Wits over the weekend confirming that Ochaya had successfully passed the one-week trials.

“We are now in final negotiations with them over the final transfer fee but we are not desperate to sell because we have many other offers from Europe. As management, we are still settling for the right price but we believe he is worth $300,000 (Shs1.1b),” he said.

KCCA chairman Julius Kabugo admitted they are still cautiously deliberating on the right price to sell Ochaya.
“We have to consider a lot of issues before we put pen to paper. Attributes like the player’s age, playing position and the possibility of being sold to another big club by Wits will have to count,” he said.

Ochaya, in his mid-twenties, said that he was thrilled by the friendly environment at Wits during his trial period and eagerly looks forward for a professional stint with them.

“Their technical staff were impressed when I played 45 minutes against Golden Arrows. In the next three friendly games I played, they treated me as their own. I feel this is the right place to relaunch my professional career,” he told Daily Monitor yesterday. Other Uganda Cranes stars; Farouk Miya and Moses Oloya recently cost $400,000(Shs1.3b) each for their moves to Belgium and Russia respectively.
