Reports suggest that the ex-Cranes captain is recovering at Gwatiro Clinic and reports by a local television station confirmed the shooting.

Uganda’s leading television station NTV, revealed that the former Bloemfontein Celtic striker was shot near his home by police in a road rage incident.

Massa is said to have hit a police motorcycle before speeding off which forced police to shoot. A woman who was a passenger in his car reportedly died on the scene.

Massa began his professional career at Police FC in 2004 and later landed a deal to join Egyptian side Al-Masry in 2005.

Since then, he has played for several clubs including El-Shams, Jomo Cosmos, Itesalat, Yenicami Agdelen, University of Pretoria and Bloemfontein Celtic.
