In Summary

  • Batoto Ba Mungu released eight players deemed surplus to requirements after the transfer window opened.
  • Among them were Nigerian striker Promise Chinoso, former KCB defender Jacobs Faina, defender Bryson Juma, who was signed in November from second-tier Soy United and midfielders David Simiyu.
  • Others were goalkeeper Isaiah Wakasala, Captain Eli Asieche, Ghanaian striker Jedinak Nana and another Nigerian striker Michael Karamor.

Sofapaka President Elly Kalekwa says the club have wrapped-up their transfer business for foreign players.

This comes after the 2009 champions sealed the signing of two players – Burundian midfielder Bizimana Amissi and goalkeeper Abdoul-Moubarak Aigba.

The two players have signed two-year contracts each.

Amissi joins from Rukinzu FC while Aigba formerly turned out for  AS OTR Football Club in Togo.

Completing the list of foreign imports is David Nshimirimana, also from Burundi, who joined earlier on.

According to Kalekwa, they have now closed transfers for foreign players having attained the set quota of five.

The club will however look to add one more signing, a local player, before the transfer window shuts.

“We have now closed our business to sign foreign players because we have reached the required quota, we already had two in our squad and since none of them is going out, we are done with the business,” he said.

On whether they are done signing local-based players, Kalekwa said they will make one more signing.
