Uganda’s Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) defender Joseph Ochaya will head to South Africa on Thursday for a three-week trial with Bidvest Wits.

KCCA CEO David Tamale told the Daily Monitor that Wits sent an invitation letter to his club asking for Ochaya to come and have trials with the club for 21 days.

“We are hoping he can get the deal afterwards. They (Wits) wrote to asking for his services and we hope all goes well for him,” said Tamale.

The KCCA Player of the Year says he is ready to make the most of his time with Wits.

“I have worked hard to get this chance. I am focused and know what to do once I get there,” said Ochaya.
