“Yes, I’m very happy because I am the only Uganda player to win 10 league titles for the club,” Mubiru said.

Mubiru could not confirm whether he was going to retire said, “You have seen me practice as a referee which means that am preparing for my life after active rugby but that does not mean I am quitting.”
 
He added that he would only quit if there is a youngster who can upstage him but at the moment he will stay active.
