What you need to know:

  • In his free time back home, Ssegwanyi says he shares with junior players skills on how to excel in the game. He has trained his eyes on being a GM.
  • “For the next six months, I am working towards getting my practicing license (pharmacist).

For example, go to Europe for a year or two and expose myself to the strong events,” he said.
