Jjaja Walu, as locally known, joined the team last year in August from Gor Mahia and leaves after five months.
Reports in South Africa claim that the Amkhosi have loaded off Walusimbi in an effort to free one of the five international slots to register new goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi.
Walusimbi has struggled recently to break into the starting team with Coach Ernst Middendorp favouring Ntiya Ntiya Siphosakhe.
Denis Onyango (Mamelodi Sundowns) and Allan Kateregga (Cape Town) are the only Ugandans playing in the South African League (PSL).
Walusimbi had stints with Bunamwaya (now Vipers) and SC Villa locally before trying out with Don Bosco and Gor Mahia.
He is regarded as one of the best full backs the country has ever produced. His game reading and work rate have kept him very long on top of the game.
