Talk about women’s football in Uganda at the moment, the name Hasifa Nassuna will come to the forefront.
The reigning Fufa female footballer of the year has shot herself to prominence because of her undoubted talent and proven over the years that she is a football goddess.
The ability to score, create and beat defenders with ease is what has made Nassuna a peculiar footballer.
Reliable reports indicate the football gem has completed a move to join Uganda Christian University (UCU) Lady Canons.
Nassuna who has previously played only for Kawempe Muslim has joined the Mukono based institute on a sports scholarship where she will study but as well play for the University team.
“She (Nassuna) has joined UCU on scholarship and the condition was that she joins the university team,” confirmed a source that preferred anonymity.
According to the source, Nassuna will pursue a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication.
Nassuna has been a key figure at Kawempe Muslim helping the team wins three Fufa Women League titles in a row.
She was the top scorer last season with 24 league goals and captained the team to success following the departure of partner in crime Sandra Nabweteme who moved to South West Oklahoma State University in USA.
Nassuna was also the top scorer at the 2016 Women’s CECAFA championship with six goals and has gone on to win several individual awards including being crowned the best female player in 2016.
Goalkeeper Ruth Aturo also from Kawempe Muslim is the other player that UCU Lady Cardinals have recruited.
The lanky shot stopper who plays for the national team (Crested Cranes) has been admitted on a scholarship in Project planning.
UCU Lady Cardinals reached the finals of the 2016/17 Fufa Women elite league but terribly lost (4-0) to Kawempe Muslim.
