Uganda Cranes Captain Emmanuel Okwi has joined Iraq’s giants Al-Zawraa Sports Club.

The deal was revealed by the skipper through his social media platforms after a spell without club football since the end of June.

In a post, Okwi revealed

Okwi ended his time with Rwanda’s Kiyovu where he had signed on a year-long deal as a free agent after his two-year’s tenure at Al Ittihad Alexandria climaxed.

The 14-time Iraq Premier League winners become Okwi’s 8th club after playing for SC Villa, Simba, Young Africans, Etoile Du Sahel,  Al Ittihad, and Kiyovu Sports.

Okwi joins a few Ugandan names like Hassan Wasswa that have played in Iraq.
