Capital City side Blue Eagles have made a sensational claim that they have not received resignation from attacking midfielder Vitumbiko Kumwenda.
A letter has gone viral on social media that Kumwenda has resigned but Eagles chairperson, Alexander Ngwala, Tuesday claimed that the player had not communicated anything on the letter.
“I do not have any letter in my office and I am just hearing from social media. I will respond once I get his letter,” Ngwala said.
In the letter Kumwenda claimed that he had terminated his contract with the club which was due to expire in December this year.
“I hereby tender my resignation from Blue Eagles FC with immediate effect. The clause referred to stipulates that the player may at any time terminate his appointment upon giving one month notice to the club or amount equal to his one month benefits with written notice to the employer,” reads part of the letter.
Reports suggest that Kumwenda has already agreed on personal terms with Wanderers, waiting for his release from Eagles to complete the transfer.
Wanderers General Secretary, Victor Maunde, said they were following with keen interest as events unfold.
“We are just following what is happening. On our part, we did but the player and Eagles have the final say,” Maunde said.
If Kumwenda joins Wanderers, he will become the third player to leave Eagles after Schumacher Kuwali and Foster Biton who moved to UD Songo and Silver Strikers, respectively. He will also become Wanderers’ third signing after Peter Wadabwa and Juma Yatina joined the club.
At Wanderers, Kumwenda will compete for places with Mike Kaziputa, Felix Zulu, Isaac Kaliati and Richard Rabson. Kumwenda formed one of the most featured attacking combinations at Eagles alongside Kuwali, Biton and Micium Mhone.
