Ex-Gor striker Sserunkuma leads Vipers to Ugandan league title

Former Gor Mahia forward Dan Sserunkuma on Friday led Vipers FC to the Ugandan league title, a feat that had several of his fans, including his Kenyan wife – elated.

The dreadlocked striker scored in his team’s 4-1 triumph over UPDF on the final match day to finish on top of the log, four points ahead of their closest challengers KCCA.

The former Simba (Tanzania) and Bandari forward also finished as the league’s top scorer with 17 goals to aid the club to only its third league title.

Sserunkuma’s wife Tumme Galgao could hide her joy.

“There goes the Kenyan champion and the golden boot winner. To God be the glory. I can now take coffee in peace,” she wrote on Facebook.

WEDDING

Tumme and Sserunkuma met during the latter’s days in the Kenyan Premier League and formalised their union in an invite-only wedding in 2013.

The couple has a baby girl born three years ago.

Nairobi News understands that Tumme chose to remain in Kenya, where she is in charge of the family business, after Sserunkuma relocated to his native Uganda to pursue his career.

Following this victory, Vipers will now set to represent Uganda in the Caf Africa Champions League in 2019, but it remains to be seen if Sserunkuma will be part of the set-up.

The player has in the past been linked with moves to the Kenyan and Zambian clubs.
