Fact: you can’t finish the country’s modern soccer encyclopedia without mention the name Peter Wadabwa.
For starters, Wadabwa had a glorious season of 2015/2016 TNM Super League where he was crowned player of the season by his team, Be Forward Wanderers. That aside, he was also the top goal scorer of FISD Cup and TNM Super league during the said season.
2016/2017 season, however, was one of the worst seasons for this fierce striker for he had to endure a long groin injury. This setback made him miss a better part of the season.
But towards the end of the season, the animal was unleashed; Peter recovered tremendously. Immediately, he made a notable impact to his team during the last six matches of the TNM Super league. Simply put, he was the game changer for he notched some important goals that enabled his team, Mighty Be Forward Wanderers to be the Champions of the TNM Super League.
On a good day, and in fine form, Wadabwa is ruthless. He is a menace to most defenders locally.
Briefly, Peter Wadabwa started his footballing career at a tender age of 10 with a club called Mbawala Bushbucks.
Over the years, he has rendered his services to various clubs locally and internationally. Domestically, he has ever donned shirts for the now-defunct ESCOM United, Wanderers youth, Silver Strikers, and currently Be Forward Wanderers.
While on the international scene, he has worn his favorite jersey number 9, an aspiration from the Brazilian Ronaldo, while playing for South African teams in the likes of Thanda Royal Zulus, Jomo Cosmos, and Golden Arrows among others.
Watch out for this amazing striker in the current season, for out of the three games his team has played he has already scored two goals. (as of Saturday, 5th May 2018)
