Okwi will also be the captain of the local-based players during the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup that will be held in Kenya starting November 27 but his official start is tomorrow.

Accordingly, Okwi will be assisted by Kira young defender, Richard Kasagga who was thought before to be the captain in absence of all other senior players since he did the job well during the Cranes friendly against Egypt last month.

Hassan Wasswa captained Cranes during last year’s CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup held in Kampala and went on to lift the trophy but is now absent.

In a related development, the Cranes senior captain Andrew Mwesigwa visited the team yesterday for inspiration.

“Do everything as a team for success,” he advised the players.

Mwesigwa retired from playing for Cranes in CECAFA tournament after the 2011 championship in Tanzania.

Cranes will have its last training Friday to give time to the Rwanda national team to have its training at Mandela National Stadium later in the evening.

CECAFA draws will be conducted today in Nairobi but the launch of the tournament has been pushed to Wednesday next week, with no clear reasons.
