ALEMIGA HUSSEIN: Westnile Golf’s Brightest Star

Life offers varying prospects in different measures. Many a time, one pays a huge opportunity cost to dwell along a given pathway and boldly tick some boxes, definitely leaving the others.

The Current West Nile Golf Club Secretary for other games, Alemiga Hussein played football during his infancy.

It is however less surprising that along the way, he opted for golf which has since witnessed him achieve his personal dreams and made him famous.
