Kwizera ready to turn next page, calls on suitors

Ugandan utility man Hamidu Kwizera’s time at Kericho based Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Zoo FC is up. After two seasons with the team, Hamidu has opted to seek a new challenge upon the end of his contract.

Primarily a defender, who has in his stint in the KPL played in both full back roles, as well as center – back and defensive midfield, Hamidu says he is open to offers across the top two tiers – the KPL and National Super League (NSL) though he won’t shut the door on a move out of the country should one materialize.


Having played across both the KPL and NSL, he comes packed up with loads of experience and his versatility, he believes, should be a big selling point.

“My contract at Zoo FC ended at the close of the first leg so I am a free agent and hoping to get a new challenge. While I train to keep fit I am also on the lookout for potential employers and I believe with the experience I have had in Kenyan football, I would be a good fit for any team in the NSL, KPL or even the region,” he told Soka.

Hamidu joined Zoo FC midway through 2017 from KCB, then in the second tier. Muhoroni Youth was his first team in Kenya and he has also previously featured for Sony Sugar, and Chemelil Sugar.


With the experience in the top two tiers of Kenyan football, Hamidu has almost seen it all, but he remains ambitious and is confident his next employer will benefit from his ambition as a player.

“Whenever you hit a new milestone you always want to set another target and personally, I feel I have picked vital lessons through my journey so far in Kenyan football and I am thankful to all the clubs I have played for.

“Zoo was a great family but we always want to do something more and I am ambitious and hungry for more success. I want to get to the next level and this will translate to a good show for my future employer,” he added.
