Chimwemwe Idana keeps cards close to chest


Free agent Chimwemwe Idana is taking his time before deciding his next destination after leaving Nyasa Big Bullets following the expiry of his contract.

Idana has been linked with a move to Mighty Mukuru Wanderers, Silver Strikers and Tanzanian outfit Mbeya.

A source close to the player said that Tanzanian Premier League side, Mbeya, were frontrunners to secure Idana’s future but Wanderers have also joined the race.


“All along Idana had an outright offer from Mbeya but now Wanderers are also in the race to sign him. It is a matter of evaluating offers. At first it was obvious that he will head to Tanzania but the coming in of Wanderers has complicated matters,” he said.

The Flames midfielder refused to comment on issues surrounding his future and referred us to his manager Davie Matemba, who also kept a tight lid.

“At this moment we can’t say anything regarding my player,” he said.


Idana, who was Bullets’ third captain, joined The People’s Team through the reserve side in 2017 before earning his promotion to the first team in the 2018/19 season.

During his six-year stay at Bullets, Idana won two Charity Shields, four TNM Super League titles, the Airtel Top 8 Cup and the FDH Bank Cup.

Idana was Player of The Season in the 2020/21 campaign.
