Okhuti captured Mike Mutebi’s attention when he without warning put up a scintillating performance for Express scoring eight goals in first round of 2015/ 16 Uganda premier league season.
Since they were able, on 1st January 2016, KCCA under the authority of Mutebi bought the 27 – year- old cranes striker at undisclosed fee, unfortunately Okhuti did not replicate the same performance for the Kasasiro boys.
Although it is hard to tell if chance was not given him or he just didn’t impress, nevertheless Okhuti was forced to request to be loaned to his home town club Onduparaka FC.
With the trust put in him by Adraa and Mbabazi because of his ten years’ experience of playing professional football locally and international, both club and national level, Okhuti didn’t disappoint!
Whilst at the club besides acting as a big brother, Okhuti was considered one of the most hard working players. Club PRO Otelul Veggas Adams confirmed to Soccer 256 Onduparaka’s desire to retain the striker.
“Okhuti is still on loan but we are working hard to see he comes back home, he led the young boys very well, both on and off the pitch.” Said Otelul.
Meanwhile it’s not crystal clear if KCCA is willing to sale the striker because when asked, the head of media Clives Kyazze replied to Soccer 256 columnist Joel;
“It’s not upon me to say if we shall sale the player or not, it’s up to the coach because he has to assess if his squad is big enough or he still needs his services”
In regard to the Arua lad’s worth, Kyazze said the manager is the best to declare his price tag.
Based on observation and facts of Soccer 256, KCCA’s squad is catholic enough. The services of G. Sserunkuma, Derrick Nsibambi, B. Majwega, L. Bukenya, R. Sentongo, P. Musamali, R. Musana, V. Kayizzi in the forward positions does not put the Lugogo side in a desperate state.
Considering the fact that Mutebi rarely fields in Sentongo, Kayizzi, and also hardly used Caesar, coupled with how comfortable the striker is at the Greenlight Stadium, it seems he could permanently be on his way out of the club.
The question then remains, shall Benjamin Nyakuni loose his financial temper to meet the high player cost in contemporary modern football?
