BIOGRAPHY

Caeser Okhuti, born on 7th October 1990 in Arua, Uganda, announced himself in the Ugandan football scene in 2006 when he helped second division side Ediofe Hills FC (defunct) qualify for 2007 top flight. Known for his speed, perfect first touch, excellent ball control, ability in the air, powerful and accurate strikes, and ball retention, he was able to catch the eyes of the Uganda Cranes coach Csaba László,who gave him his first call-up to represent the Cranes in the 2007 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup in Tanzania.

He is remembered for his outstanding performance in the quarter finals of the tournament,  where he scored the opener against Kenya and later scored the winner in a 4-2 penalty shootout.

His performance with the national team attracted Vipers SC, who signed him on a three year deal in 2008. Caeser would later on move to play for Vietnamese side, Vissai Ninh Binh (2011), before returning for his second stint at Vipers SC between 2012 to 2014.

He played for South Sudan side El Nasir in 2014/15 season and came back to Uganda where he featured for Onduparaka FC in 2015, then joined Express FC during the 2015/16 season. His good performance with the Red Eagles earned him a move to KCCA FC in the second round of  2015/2016.

In 2016/17 season,Onduparaka FC acquired his service on a long season loan deal before turning it permanent the following season.

Caeser signed for us in January 2020 and was named the team captain by the Head Coach Hussein Mbalangu in October 2020 due his experience and leadership skills, both on and off the pitch.

He has represented the national team in 2008 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup, 2011 Nile Basin Tournament, CHAN 2011, CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup 2015, and CHAN 2016. He has also featured in the Africa Cup of Nation Qualifiers and World Cup Qualifiers.

One of the greatest West Nile players ever, Caeser is known for providing assists to his teammates and his ability to combine power and pace in set piece situations. He is technically perfect, he brings together unselfishness, composure and goals to make him exceptional.

Caeser is usually ranked among the greatest players in the region, alongside Muhammad Shaban, Haruna Mawa, and the Leti brothers (Mike and Charles).

His diverse and robust playing style has seen him frequently cited as the pugnacious striker many defenders have had to face in Ugandan top flight football, and at one point he was described by Ugandan newspaper tabloids as “Ugandan Didier Drogba”.

On an individual level Caeser has scored 66 careers goals for both club and country, with a career high of 18 goals in 2008/09 season, that ranked him as the second top scorer in the Uganda Premier League at Vipers SC.

Ceaser’s team achievements are also notable: two CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup in 2008 and 2015, two Uganda Premier League title with Vipers SC in 2009/10 and KCCA FC in 2015/16.
