If he succeeds he will join three other Ugandan players who ply their trade in SA
KCCA FC’s Joseph Ochaya on Thursday morning left for South Africa to under-go two week’s trials with Bidvest Wits.
The KCCA left back who was invited last month, left via Kenya Airways ahead of the trials that are scheduled to start later this week.
"It’s painful that we are losing a great player like Ochaya. He is one of the key players we were going to depend on during our engagement in the CAF Champions League. But we have nothing to do but wish him all the best," club chairman Julius Kabugo stated.
If Ochaya moves to Bidvest Wits it won't his first time to play outside Uganda.
Ochaya left KCCA in 2012 for Ghana's Asante Kotoko where he featured for close to two seasons before falling out with the club in 2014.
The matter was later referred to FIFA which granted him permission to join his former club.
If he succeeds he will join other Ugandan players who feature for different clubs in South Africa.
These are Cranes captain Geoffrey Massa (Baroka FC), Denis Onyango (Mamelodi Sundowns) and Chrizestom Ntambi (Vasco da Gama).
