Swangz Avenue co-owner and chief executive has expanded his talent management skills to sports.
It is rumoured that Julius Kyazze joined hands with Geoffrey Kayemba, the Bukomansimbi South Constituency legislator, to form a sports agency and their partnership had big news yesterday afternoon when they brokered the transfer of Cranes’ star Khalid Aucho from Egyptian Club Le Makkasa to Tanzania’s powerhouse Yanga Fc.
On his social media pages, Julius posted “Congrats Aucho and I am grateful to have been a part of this moment.” He continued to thank Hon Kayemba who has been Aucho’s manager for several years.
Khalid Aucho was unveiled at a packed press conference in Dar-er- Salaam, Tanzania with his agents Kayemba and Kyazze by his side.
The amount for the transfer was not disclosed, but it is rumoured to be the biggest Yanga Fc has ever paid for a player.
Yanga is preparing for a champions league season and Aucho will be joining his new team when they start pre-season next week.
Kyazze has continued to diversify his businesses, investing in content creators, therefore providing employment for several Ugandans.
