The duo, who play for Uganda Revenue Authority, impressed Pirates' technical team during the clubs' CAF Confederation Cup duel earlier this year.
Bucs edged the two-legged tie 4-3, with Mugerwa scoring in a 2-2 draw at Lugazi Stadium on April 4. URA general secretary Henry Mayeku confirms that the players – who are both 21-year-old midfielders – have been invited for trials. “Yes it’s true, they have been invited for trials by Orlando Pirates.
They are still waiting for their visas and I believe they should be arriving in South Africa this coming Friday,” Mayeku said. Pirates currently have five foreigners on their books in the form of Issa Sarr, Tendai Ndoro, Felipe Ovono, Helder Pelembe and Mwape Musonda, although at least one of the latter two are likely to leave the club.
