    Fred Kajoba, the former Uganda Cranes goalkeeping coach, has tragically passed away at the age of 54 while working in Tanzania.

    The exact cause of his death remains unclear, although sources close to him suggest he had been battling diabetes and high blood pressure.

    Fred Kajoba’s demise occurred shortly after his team, Ihefu, secured a narrow 1-0 victory against Tanzanian Prisons. Reports indicate that he had complained of feeling unwell the previous evening and sought medical attention, but his condition deteriorated rapidly.

    On the morning of his passing, Kajoba expressed further discomfort, prompting another hospital visit. Despite efforts to receive treatment, he succumbed to his illness later in the day.

    Kajoba, who previously served as head coach for Vipers, had joined Ihefu as goalkeeping coach under Moses Basena’s leadership. However, his tenure was short-lived as he was eventually replaced by compatriot Matia Lule.

    Born on May 5, 1969, Kajoba made headlines in 2022 when he resigned from Vipers after being asked to prioritize his commitment to the club over his national team duties. He staunchly defended his decision, emphasizing his loyalty to serving his country.
