Uganda Premier League record champions Sports Club Villa have unveiled a new club patron.
SC Villa have on Tuesday morning unveiled Gerald Kasozi Waiswa as the new patron in a function held at Kati Kati Restaurant in Kampala.
The function was presided over by current club President, Eng. Ben Immanuel Misagga who believes the appointment will help in filling the leadership vacuum in such a crucial position that SC Villa has been missing.
“This is a great day in the history of the club. Mr. Gerald Kasozi Wasswa is our new patron who fills the vacuum left by the late Balamaze Lwanga,” Misagga said.
Waiswa replaces longserving Balamaze Lwanga who passed on in 2011.
The new club patron is an educationist best known for his school Bright Grammar School in Masaka district.
Waiswa vowed to serve in his new capacity to the best of his ability and help rekindling the club’s lost glory.
“SC Villa is not a new club to me. I have been with the club in good and bad moments. I have been a fan for the club. SC Villa is my blood. I will dedicate my time to SC Villa to make sure we return to our glorious days,” he said.
On the same function, Valley Mugwanya who has been serving as acting CEO has been fully appointed replacing Ivan Kakembo.
