Uganda Cranes keeper goalkeeper, Benjamin Ochan has joined Kenyan Premier League side, AFC Leopards on a one-year deal, Opera News can confirm.

Ochan moves to AFC Leopards as a free agent after his contract with Zambian side Kabwe Warriors whom he joined in 2018 from Ugandan champions, KCCA was terminated on mutual consent.

He failed to nail his place at Kabwe Warriors and he now moves to the den where he is expected to fill the void left by Rwandese keeper Erick Ndayishimiye who was axed by the club after a disastrous 2018/19 Kenyan Premier League campaign.
