Joachim Ojera is set to complete his transfer from Rwandan side Rayon Sports to New Al Arab SC in Egypt.

When the deal is announced, Ojera will join his compatriot Joseph Ochaya at the Arab Football Contractors.

Ochaya joined the Egyptian outfit in 2022 from African powerhouse TP Mazembe in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Ojera is a former Uganda Revenue Authority (URA FC) player, a team he left in the January 2023 transfer window on loan.

Following an impressive six-month loan spell, Rayon Sports acquired his services permanently on a two-year deal in the August 2023 exchange market.

He leaves a darling in Nyanza with one and a half years remaining on his contract.

The winger’s new club is currently struggling, and they’ll be hoping that his addition will help them turn their fortunes around.

After ten games, Al Mokawloon is positioned 16th on the 18-team log with seven points.

Richard Basangwa and Allan Kyambadde are the other Ugandan footballers plying their trade in Egypt for Wadi Degla and El Dhakeleya, respectively.
