Tanzanian giants Simba lure top Ugandan fan with Sh2 million offer

By Nahashon Musungu

Tanzanian champions Simba Sports Club are reported to have tabled a Sh2 million bid to acquire the services of celebrated Ugandan football fans cheerleader Joseph ‘Kamodo’ Muwonge.

Reliable Ugandan site Kawowo Sports has reported that Kamodo has officially been approached by the Msimbazi Street-based club.

The burly cheerleader was among a handful of Ugandan fans who watched as the Cranes were thrashed 3-0 by Tanzania on Sunday during a 2019 Africa Nations Cup qualification match in Dar es Salaam.

NEGOTIATIONS

And moments after the match ended, Kamodo was spotted in negotiations with top Simba officials.

“They (Simba officials) loved the way I command authority of the fans with the Vuvuzela. After the game, they talked to me but the negotiations are not yet conclusive,” Kamodo told Kawowo Sports.

Besides cheer leading the Uganda Cranes, Kamodo is also a popular figure during the Vipers Sports Club matches as well as school games involving Saint Mary’s Kitende.

He switched allegiance to Vipers following a stint at SC Villa.

KENYAN CHEERLEADERS

Nairobi News could not immediately establish if the current deal involves relocating to Dar, where Simba is based.

Simba boast a huge fan base at their National stadium base and could be seeking Kamodo to rally fans during their matches.

Ardent Gor Mahia fan Jaro Soja and his AFC Leopards counterpart Juma are some of Kenya leading football fans.
