Uganda Cranes midfielder Moses Waiswa Ndhondhi, has completed a move to South Africa’s based club SuperSport United FC on a two-year deal.

Waisawa’s former club, Vipers SC, confirmed on Thursday the transfer after both clubs agreed an undisclosed fee for the midfielder to join the three times ABSA Premier Soccer League champions.

The 22-year old signed for Vipers in January 2017 and went on to win the 2017/18 Uganda Premier League with the club. He also won the 2018 FUFA player of the year award.

Moses Waiswa issued the following statement on the Vipers website following his move to Supersport United FC.

“I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone connected to Vipers Sports Club; from the owner; Dr. Lawrence Mulindwa, to the head coach, the backroom staff, and of course to the supporters who have been amazing to me throughout my time at the club.”

“Having joined the club as a midfielder, the club has helped me to develop and progress immensely both as a footballer and as a person. I will always be grateful to everyone at the club for what they have allowed me to achieve. In a footballers’ career, it’s not often that you get the chance to work with a club that is willing to passionately dedicate so much time and effort to improving and developing players, so I feel very lucky to have enjoyed one-and-a-half years at this great club.”

“The memories that I will take from Vipers will stay with me forever. After the journey that we’ve been on and the success that we’ve had, it was a very tough decision to leave Vipers SC and I had to think long and hard about what was right for my long term career. Vipers has been great to me over my time here and I’d like to think that I’ve been good to you and I leave with the club in a better place. Make no mistake, Vipers is a club that is on the rise and has a very bright future.”

“Winning the 2017/18 League title and Fufa player of the year award at the club was the biggest honour that I’ve had in my career so far, and I will be eternally thankful to the club for everything that it has done for me. Vipers will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you again and I wish the club all the very best for the future. You Venoms!!!”

He joins Denis Onyango (Mamelodi Sundowns) and Allan Kateregga (Cape Town City) among the Ugandans playing in the ABSA Premiership in South Africa.

Waiswa has been a regular during Desabre reign as the Cranes manager but missed out on the Afcon in Egypt after sustaining a knee injury in the Abu Dhabi training camp.
