The transfer window in Uganda officially opened on Saturday, July 1, 2023, and teams have already started releasing and signing players.

One of the most notable transfers is that of Uganda Martyrs Lubaga Women Football Club sharp striker Latifah Nakasi.

Nakasi, 17, is reportedly unhappy with her current club and is strongly committed to leaving. She has one year left on her contract, but Uganda Martyrs are not ready to release their best center forward.

The current winners of the FUFA Women’s Cup have already lost two key players, defender Patience Nabulobi and forward Catherine Nagadya, who joined Kampala Queens FC.

Nakasi is expected to follow them out the door in the summer, with several FUFA Women Super League clubs and two Tanzanian clubs interested in signing her.

Nakasi is a talented striker who has shown her potential in recent seasons.

She scored seven goals and registered four assists in the 2022/23 FUFA Women Super League, and she became the first Uganda Martyrs player to score a hat-trick in the league in 2021/22 when her club defeated She Maroons 5-1 at home in Lubaga.

Her departure would be a major blow to Uganda Martyrs, but it would also be a major boost for any club that is able to sign her.

Nakasi is a young player with a lot of potential, and she could be a key player for any team that is looking to challenge for silverware in the coming seasons.
