Moses Waiswa has thanked his friend Denis Onyango for helping him settle in South Africa and at SuperSport United.

The 22-year-old Ugandan international signed for Matsatsantsa in the January transfer window on a two-year deal from Ugandan Super League side Vipers SC.

Before all sporting activities were suspended as a result of the coronavirus and a government imposed 21-day lockdown, Waiswa managed to play three games for his new club.

And speaking from his accommodation in Midrand where he is keeping fit alone, Waiswa praised his compatriot from Mamelodi Sundowns.

He told the Sowetan: "Denis is my best friend. He played a big role in assisting me to know the country and the league well.

"My family is in Uganda and Denis is the only person I knew before coming to SA.

"He [Onyango] also taught me about the culture at SuperSport because he was there before joining Sundowns. Before Covid-19 I was starting to enjoy my football and I was called up to the national team again, so things were starting to fall in place for me in the PSL."

Waiswa was born in Kampala but did his high school education in Sweden where he also played for Division 3 team Vaxto United before returning home to Uganda in 2016.
