UPL Transfers: KCCA Confirms Balinya Departure

Uganda Premier League side KCCA FC have confirmed the immediate departure of forward Juma Balinya from the club via the club website and social media platforms.

According to the statement, both parties have agreed to mutually terminate the contract and head separate ways despite the fact that Balinya still had a year to go.

The forward joined the Kasasiro Boys as a free agent after sojourns from Kenyan side Gor Mahia and Tanzanian side Young Africans who he joined in 2019.

Prior to his move to Tanzania, Balinya had clinched the golden boot for his impressive 19 goals tally during the 2018/2019 Uganda Premier League season.

His return to the country to eventually join the Lugogo side was on September 1st 2020, putting pen to paper on a two-year contract whose expiry date had to be 31st August 2022.

He realistically didn’t live up to the expectations following the underwhelming displays he put up for KCCA FC. It is therefore not a surprise that the club has parted ways with him.

Balinya joins Moses Aliro, Samuel Kato, Moses Kalanzi, Filbert Obenchan and Keziron Kizito who have been forced out of the door at Lugogo.

Steven Serwadda joined Major League Soccer side Newyork Red Bulls while Goalkeeper Hassan Matovu signed for Soltilo Bright Stars.
