The side opened up with a two all draw in Lira against Amuka Bright Stars.The draw leaves JMC  Hippos with four points as the side had earned a 1-0 win over Bukedea Town Council in their league opener.Wakiso host Kataka FC at Bugembe Stadium in their next fixture on November 15.Commentslast_img read more
