SC Villa interim committee chairman William Nkemba has promised a rejuvenated SC Villa. According to Nkemba, the committee is finalising a five-year strategic plan to streamline the club’s administration before election of leaders at the end of the current season. “As you are aware, our mandate as the interim committee expired but the club’s board of directors extended our term until the end of the season to finalise a few strategic things,” noted Nkemba on Thursday as the record 16-time champions unveiled their new players ahead of second round. The Jogoos, who finished first round 13th on the 16-team log with 14 points after 15 games, unveiled 13 new players and head coach Douglas Bamweyana holds faith in the new signings as well as the old guards.
The new players include National U23 goal keeper Said Keni from Proline, last season’s Pepsi University league most valuable player Racmac Ashaba, Charles Lwanga promoted from the junior side and Dusman Peter (South Sudanese) among others.
