Kenya and Tottenham Hotspur star Victor Wanyama is set to visit Uganda on a tour organised by the Ugandan music icon Eddy Kenzo Musuuza.
Media reports reveal that Musuuza has since confirmed Wanyama’s visit to Uganda set for the beginning of July 2017.
Wanyama is currently enjoying his off-season break with the English Premier League giants ahead of the new 2017/18 EPL campaign.
However, he will play two charity matches in Uganda and it is reported that the proceeds will help out the ailing football legends and a charity organisation.
“He will play in two charity matches in Masaka and Lugogo with proceeds aimed at helping out the ailing football legends and a charity organization,” said Musuuza to Kawowo Sports
“In Masaka, the match will be held at Masaka Recreational stadium on the 7th July 2017 and in Kampala, the game will be at Phillip Omondi stadium.
“We expect so many fans to come and see the legends of the game and as well, support the charity cause attached.”
Musuuza is a retired footballer who turned to music and has transformed his magnetic appeal from music to help impoverished communities in Uganda.
“When Wanyama visits, Uganda’s retired football legends as Sulaiman Mutyaba, Hassan Mubiru, David Obua, Steven Bengo, Hakim Magumba, Paul Mukatabala, Edward Kalungi will take to the field alongside some active players as Saddam Juma, Tonny Mawejje and others in the name of charity,” adds the musician.
