Ex-Gor Mahia player now living large in Uganda

Former Gor Mahia forward Arthur Ssemazi seems to be doing just fine after leaving the cash-strapped Kenyan Premier League club atleast going by the impression the playing is giving on social media.

The 28 year old player this week uploaded photos of himself flossing with loads of cash in Ugandan currency on his official social media pages. The cash is in denomination of 10,000, 20,000 and 50,000 Ugandan notes.

The left footed attacker captioned the photos with a message in Luganda that reads:  Sente weziri tojaali baibe. Kati stress free abit, (Money is available no need to worry babe, now just free yourself from stress abit)

These words are lyrics from one of Uganda’s famous artistes Bobi Wine’s track Kigwa leero (It must end today).

The pictures seem to have been taken in the background of what appear to a shop, possibly in Kampala where the player currently resides.

Ssemazi had a troubled six-month stint at Gor Mahia in 2014, after the KPL champions, then under the tutelage of current Harambee Stars coach Bobby Wiilliamson forked out some Sh 500,000 to acquire his services from Ugandan side Lweza FC.

He went on to play a bit part role at the club punctuated by off the field troubles. In one incident, the player lost his household valuables including the KPL winners medal to robbers at his one-bedroomed house in Buruburu.
