South African giants SuperSport United and Uganda Cranes international Moses Waiswa has praised Cranes skipper Denis Onyango for helping him feel at home in South Africa.
Waiswa joined SuperSport United from Vipers SC in June 2019 but he was officially unveiled at the club on January 2020, penning a two-year deal.
Since then, he has played three games across all competitions in the Tshwane side’s colours.
Before the coronavirus outbreak which forced the PSL to indefinitely stop, the 22-year-old attacking-midfielder was starting to find his feet.
In that case, Waiswa has since attributed his good start to Onyango who helped him a lot to adapt to South Africa’s life.
“Denis is my best friend, he played a big role in assisting me to know the country and the league well,” Waiswa was quoted saying by sowetanlive.co.za.
“My family is in Uganda and Denis is the only person I knew before coming to South Africa.”
“He also taught me about the culture at SuperSport because he was there before joining Sundowns.”
“Before Covid-19, I was starting to enjoy my football and I was called up to the national team again, so things were starting to fall in place for me in the PSL,” he added.
Who is Moses Waiswa?
Moses Waiswa Ndhondhi was born on 20 April 1997 in Kampala. He plays for SuperSport United and Uganda Cranes as an attacking midfielder.
He has previously played for Växjö United in Sweden and Vipers SC. He won the 2017–18 Uganda Premier League with the Venoms.
He made his international debut for Uganda Cranes in 2017. He scored on his debut after receiving a call-up to the national team which came to him as a surprise.
“I studied in Sweden. All my high school … I did in Sweden and I played four years there for Vaxjo United before eventually moving back to Uganda in 2016.”
He is currently self-isolated in Midrand amid the coronavirus-compelled national lockdown. He, however, trains indoors, following the club’s directives.
“I’m living in an apartment in Midrand. The club sends us a training programme every day. I follow it by doing my workouts in the yard.”
Coronavirus pandemic has led to the suspension of all sports activities across the world as one way of fighting it.
