Robert Ssejjemba (born 5 December 1980 in Kampala, Uganda) is a retired Ugandan professional soccer player and the current coach of the Virginia Intermont Cobras men's soccer program.

Career[edit]

Late in the 2006 Major League Soccer season he made one start for DC United, but was not signed to a professional contract by them. He then played the 2007 season with the Richmond Kickers before moving to the Charlotte Eagles for the 2008 season. In the 2008 USL Second Division final with the Eagles, however, an ACL injury ended Ssejjemba's playing career.[1] He also made several appearances for the Ugandan national team, including qualifiers for the 2006 World Cup.[2]

In 2009, he became the head coach of the men's soccer program at Virginia Intermont College, his alma mater.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Ssejjemba is a Christian. He met his wife Katie when they were students at Virginia Intermont.
