Former Uganda Cranes star midfielder Willy Kyambadde passed away in the wee hours of Monday.

According to reports, Kyambadde lost his balance and fell at his home in Kawempe, eventually breathing his last.

The President of the Former players, Jackson Mayanja confirmed the damning news; “I have just been told this morning that he fell down.”

“It’s sad because he has been doing fine recently. It’s very sad, May his soul rest in peace.”

Kyambadde had only recently just left rehabilitation but was struggling to make ends meet, asking for help from well-wishers to survive.

He previously featured for Arua Young, Express FC in 1995 and 2002, KCCA FC in 2000, and Vietnamese side Dongtan Long An FC in 2004.

He also actively featured at Proline, Jomo Cosmos, and Soltilo Bright Stars in 2012 where he retired.

Willy Kyambadde was an active and key figure for the Uganda Cranes between 1996 to 2004.

He was also a strong pillar of Uganda’s U23 team that reached the semi-finals of the 1999 All Africa games in South Africa.
