Mawejje Returns To Uganda Cranes Fold After Three Years

Uganda Cranes midfielder Tony Mawejje has retuned to Uganda Cranes setup ahead of the AFCON Qualifiers next month.

Mawejje has been summoned in a provisional squad of 22 Uganda Premier League players where Mckinstry will chose about five or six to join the foreign contingent for South Sudan doubleheader.

The midfielder returned to Uganda and signed for Police FC, after ending his spell with Al-Arabi SC in Kuwait.

His last action for Uganda Cranes was against Ghana, a goalless draw at Namboole on October 7 2017, in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

He has collected 83 caps since making his debut in 2003 against Mauritius, and was part of the squad that played at the 2017 AFCON tourney in Gabon.

He never played for Frenchman Sebastien Desabre, who managed to take Uganda to another AFCON tourney in 2019.

When selected for the final team, he is expected to add experience and creativity in the middle of the park.

On paper, Mawejje will be one of the fancied players to make the final team alongside goalkeeper Charles Lukwago, defender Halid Lwaliwa, teenage midfielder Bright Anukani and URA FC duo Shafic Kagimu and Said Kyeyune.

To sign for Police, a club coached by National team assistant coach Abdallah Mubiru, it is alleged that Mawejje’s terms included a Police armband and national team call-up – which have been fulfilled.
