Volleyball. Ndejje are eager to win the league for a third straight season, but more importantly better their performance at the Africa Club Championship in Tunisia next month.
In the aftermath of a near perfect 2013, Ndejje Elites coach Johnson Kawenyera had promised rock the 2014 transfer window by bringing in new faces.
But it never happened as instead he lost Shamim Mankogoro, Mariam Namiiro and Peace Busingye (all to Vision Volleyball Camp).
His only new signing is only Margaret Namyalo from KCCA.
“She is a perfect replacement for Busingye,” Kawenyera said.
“I don’t really think Makongoro and Namiiro will be missed since they were coming off the bench.
Namyalo and Ndejje’s setter Jessica Kaidu have an understanding on court that has lasted over a decade. “The chemistry between the two players is unbelievable, and it will give us an edge over the other teams,” said Kawenyera.
Namyalo and Kaidu have been teammates since their primary days at Remy Infant and Primary School and Brethren College in Kiryangonja.
Before Ndejje would qualify to play in the NSSF-KAVC International, Kaidu would be invited to play for KCCA, were she teamed up with Namyalo.
