Henry Musisi was introduced to the game of rugby by a lady named Stella in 2005 – from that point on, the man known by many names (Colonel, General, Mzee, Jaja) picked immense interest in the game. He then joined the kyadondo tag rugby set up from where he acquired many of the skill sets he possesses today. His talent was evident at such a young age that he was picked as part of the kyadondo U-13 select team that traveled to Glasgow under Jim Park.
When he got a little older, he was promoted to Stallions under the legendary Christine Kizito where he played for a couple of seasons. Musisi has been quite the journey man in rugby; as he improved, he kept climbing the Kyadondo developmental system ladder and his next stop was at Buffaloes. At Buffaloes, he didn’t get enough game time under Andrew Owari and decided to turn the page just after one season.
It wouldn’t take long for the young general to get another offer as he was picked up by Erasmus Aredo to join Warriors. This is where Henry harnessed much of his skills, becoming one of the countries most lethal ball distributors at the scrumhalf position.
He had his longest stint at a single club with Warriors from 2010- 2015 before temporarily joining Rams RFC for the 2016/17 season – however home is where the heart is; he returned to Warriors the following season and has been part of the club to date.
