KCCA Football Club gave KCCA’s outgoing Executive Director Jennifer Musisi a perfect send off.
This, was at Lugogo, where a glamorous simple party was held shortly after the club’s 3-1 victory over Ndejje University Lions in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League game on Saturday.
The event was held in recognition of Musisi’s tremendous support’ she extended to the club during her seven and half year reign as ED at the club’s mother body, Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA).
During her reign, KCCA FC was moulded into one of the best and model clubs in the region, courtesy of the established structures put in place from the top pyramid of club’s administration.
Currently, KCCA FC is the second most successful club in the country -The Kasasiro boys have won 12 league titles, four below record winners SC Villa.
Four of the 12 league titles have come under Musisi’s reign – They triumphed in 2012/13, 2013/14, 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons. The club has also won two Uganda Cups (2017 and 2018).
Notably, it was under Musisi’s reign that KCCA FC became the first club in Uganda to reach the CAF Champions League group stages.
Coach Mike Mutebi, CEO Anisha Muhoozi, Captain Timothy Awany, Club Chairman Ashaba Aggrey, Board Member Peter Kibazo and former Club chairman Julius Kabugo all speaking during the party, highlighted Musisi’s great contribution towards the transformation of KCCA FC, into the new club which is now admired by everyone.
Mutebi who was marking 100 games since taking charge of the club as the new manager, noted: “The ED (Jenifer Musisi) leaves behind good structures and I believe that we don’t have to worry what will happen after her departure.
“This is now the benchmark of every club – Its a true definition of a real football club. We are winning games and titles on merit which was not the case in the past.”
On the event, Musisi was accorded with a Life member status, and she will be able to access all KCCA games in the country, free of charge.
In her remarks, the excited ED said: “This is a great honour to be appreciated, its a sign that good work has been done. Am also proud of the club KCCA FC has turned into, just like KCCA as an organisation.”
Musisi went ahead to commend the input of Julius Kabugo and Mr. Peter Kibazo they put in to entice her before she looked into the club’s issues.
She added: “I have been made a life member, I am going to be around following the club online, and am hoping for the best.”
She extended her token of thanks to the club’s coaching staff which is headed by Mike Mutebi, and the club fans for their role.

*Before winning their first title under Musisi’s reign in 2012-13, KCCA had won only one league title in the past 15 years then.
Musisi’s era as KCCA ED will come to an end on December 15 this year, if we are to go with what was in her Resignation letter.
