Mukwala Ends it with Kotoko in August

Uganda and Kotoko forward, Steven Mukwala will leave the Ghana Premier League side after his two-year contract expires in August.

The 24-year-old who made it onto the club’s best starting eleven of the just-ended season adds up to the exit toll of the club.

In a brief statement on their social media pages, Kotoko announced his departure and appreciated the years they spent together.

“Steven Mukwala leaves Kotoko upon expiration of his contract. The club is grateful for the moments shared together and wishes him the best for the future.”

The former URA and Vipers SC forward joined Kotoko on August 3, 2022, on a two-year contract as a free agent.

He netted 14 goals and two assists in 28 appearances in the league.

His departure pegs the number of players who have left Kotoko after the 2023/2024 league season at 19 after eleven and seven sets of players were announced last week.

The set of seven included Rocky Dwamena, Julius Ofori Ziggy, Nanabayin Amoah, Richmond Opoku, Shadrack Addo, Samuel Asamoah and Isahaku Fuseini.

According to a club statement, these players agreed to the termination of their contracts on mutual grounds.

Meanwhile, the 11 players were Kalo Ouattara, ⁠Nicholas Osei Bonsu, ⁠Isaac Oppong, ⁠Augustine Agyapong, ⁠Nicholas Mensah, ⁠John Tedeku, ⁠Sherif Mohammed, ⁠George Mfegue, ⁠Serge Eric Zeze, ⁠Danlad Ibrahim and Moise Pouaty.

Kotoko after a torrid start following the leadership shakeup, further had its performance impacted by disagreements between the head coach, Prosper Narteh Ogum, and the playing body.

This took the intervention of their Patron, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to restore calm and set the team back on winning ways.

They finished the season sixth on the league log with 49 points after 34 games, winning 14 of them, losing 13 and drawing seven times.

They scored 35 goals and conceded 29.
