Emma Okwi Rejoins Tanzanian Giants Simba

Emmanuel Okwi

Uganda Cranes striker Emmanuel Arnold Okwi has completed a return to Tanzania rejoining traditional giants SC Simba.

The move was confirmed on Friday with Okwi agreeing a two year deal to return to Simba where he made a mark a few years ago.

The striker landed the deal after his short spell at SC Villa saw him regain his form scoring 10 goals in 12 games helping SC Villa finish second in the league and also made a return to the national team.

Okwi had gone through a slump during his stay at Danish based side SondyjskE where he hardly played but his short spell at SC Villa has seen him return to his best.

This will be Okwi’s third stint at Wamatopeni.

His initial stay at Simba was in 2010 when he made a move from SC Villa. He would later return to Simba for a six month spell in 2014 after his contract at Etoile Du Sahel was terminated.

Okwi joins fellow Uganda Cranes player Murushid Jjuko who has been at the team for 3 years.

The striker at one time switched allegiance in 2014 ditching Simba to join bitter and eternal rivals Yanga FC a move that sparked off controversies.
