Uganda Premier League side Vipers Sports Club has appointed Simon Peter Njuba as their new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) standing out extraordinarily amongst the 85 applicants.
Njuba who was unveiled on Tuesday by the club’s Legal Director and Executive Member Alex Luganda fills the void left by Peter Lwanga who was relieved of his duties midway through the 2019/2020 season.
The new CEO signed a two-year renewable contract with the current league Champions destined to run until 2022.
Njuba has been in the club set-up having previously served as the Transfer Match System (TMS) Manager and also dealt in all required documentation of transfers and player registration.
He is tasked with providing proper management and direction to the club that will be equally hungry and anxious to leave a mark on the continent in next season’s CAF Champions League.
“I have some good experience in football. I have also dealt with the federation before so it will not be hard for me to manage this job. I will make sure I fulfill the obligations of the club,” an excited Njuba told Vipers SC website.
He added, “I am very humbled to work with champions and I am coming with a champion’s mentality. I also know the job comes with pressure to deliver but I am prepared for the task at hand to ensure Vipers stay at the top; both sporting and management wise.”
Next season, the Venoms will represent Uganda in the CAF Champions League alongside other exciting domestic football activities in the Stanbic Uganda Cup, Pilsner Super Eight and the Uganda Premier League.
