“Wikki Tourist football club belongs to all of us: the management, government, supporters, fans, captains of sport industries. We have to come together and uplift the team to become formidable and overcome the challenges of the last season.
“Wikki is a strong team that is well known in the league, no contribution is too small to support the team, it could be water, jerseys, shoes, among others, all can help in making the team strong,” he said.
“We have been preparing very well for the next season and it is my hope that we are going to have a strong team with the calibre of players that we are going to recruit,” Dogo said.
