Uganda Cranes Goalkeeper Joins Ethiopia Premier League Side Hawasa City FC

Uganda Cranes goalkeeper, Charles Lukwago, has completed a move to Ethiopia Premier League outfit, Hawassa City FC (also known as Hawassa Kenema). Lukwago joins Hawassa on a free transfer after leaving another Ethiopian side St. George.

This follows the expiry of his two-year contract last season.

Lukwago’s recent move comes after a successful two-season tenure with St. George, where he played a pivotal role in clinching consecutive league titles for the club.

During his time with St. George, Lukwago’s goalkeeping prowess was on full display. This earned him recognition as one of the league’s top shot-stoppers.

Intriguingly, Lukwago attracted significant attention from various clubs over the past three months, including KCCA FC and Ethiopia’s Malekeya SC.

However, negotiations between the latter and the goalkeeper failed to materialize, leading to his decision to join Hawassa City.

The seasoned goalkeeper boasts a wealth of experience, having previously featured for notable clubs such as KCCA, Lweza FC, SC Victoria University, and Proline FC, among others.

Last season, Lukwago faced adversity in the form of injury, limiting his appearances to just 17 games. Nevertheless, he managed to secure four clean sheets during his sporadic outings.

Notably, Lukwago’s debut season in Ethiopia was nothing short of spectacular. He achieved the remarkable feat of 19 clean sheets in 27 games, eventually being voted the league’s best goalkeeper.

Hawassa City FC, situated in the vibrant city of Hawassa, has a rich history dating back to the 1970s. The club has previously clinched the Ethiopian Premier League title twice, in 2004 and 2007, and secured the Ethiopia Cup in 2005.
