Sekagya lauds promoted Bright Stars

Ibrahim Sekagya, the Red Bull Salzburg defender, is impressed by newly-promoted side, Bright Stars’ journey to the Super League.

The Kawempe-based side, where Sekagya was born and raised, became the first team to qualify for topflight football under Kawempe District Football Association (KDFA) last week thanks to a 1-0 win over Wandegeya to top Rwenzori Group.

“I was really happy for them on receiving the news,” said Sekagya, the former Uganda Cranes captain, who retired following the national team’s failure to qualify for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.

Sekagya added: “That’s what I call the true African football spirit, regardless of the situation. Now I could consider them true fighters who fought hard in whichever situation. I now see more exposure for more Kawempe talents.”

Bright Stars qualified together with CRO. They will be joined by one more team to complete the trio to the topflight league.
