Maroons were relegated in the abandoned 2019/20 UPL season, and the Taxmen jumped in to buy his remaining contract worth Ush 13 million. The shot-stopper took to his Facebook account to bid his former team farewell.
“Today I say goodbye to a magnificent club as it is Maroons Football Club (Uganda prisons),” Sebwalunyo posted.
“I thank the club for helping me become a better footballer and for making me feel at home during my stay at the club.”
The player has gone on to appreciate his former side for giving him a chance for development.
“A year back, Maroons gave me an amazing opportunity to play for them and achieved what we achieved,” he added.
“After this I can only say thank you to the club, coaching staff, and the fans that supported me since the day I wore the club’s jersey and of course thank you and good luck to my teammates who helped me settle in since day one, not only as teammates but as friends.
“Today I say goodbye to Maroons FC, but I take with me many memories, lessons, and great moments that will live with me forever.
“At last I wish Maroons success for the future and thank the club for giving me the opportunity to push on in my career.
