In a bid to sell the image of the team to the community, view Uganda Premier League champions, KCCA football club have on Thursday morning engaged in cleaning Nakawa market.

The playing staff led by the club chairman Julius Kabugo collected garbage and gave out cleaning equipment to the vendors of Nakawa market.

Kabugo said the vendors in the market are a strong fan base of the team (KCCA FC) and hence they had to find a way of associating with them.

“You cannot play football without the fans, they mean a lot to us and when the mayor told us they had a general cleaning of the market we did not hesitate to join them,” said Kabugo.

“If our fans are not healthy, that means they won’t come to the stadium to support us so we joined them today so that they can operate in a clean environment,” he added.

Midfielder Paul Mucureezi indicated it was a good cause for them to reach out to the vendors and engage in social community responsibility.

“I believe it’s good for us a team to come to the ground and offer any kind of support to the community. The vendors are our fans, so when we interact with them, a strong bond is created,” said Mucureezi.

KCCA take on Vipers on Friday in the Uganda Premier League in a top of the table clash with the defending champions top of the table on 18 points while Vipers are second on 12 points.
