Mighty Mukuru Wanderers, Yamikani Chester part ways


Mighty Mukuru Wanderers have parted ways with midfielder Yamikani Chester on mutual agreement.

Wanderers Commercialisation Chairperson Clement Stambuli said they agreed not to renew Chester’s contract.

Stambuli released a statement Thursday.


“The Board of Directors of Mighty Wanderers Football Club (2021) Ltd would like to inform the members of the general public and all stakeholders that we have agreed to part ways with Mr Yamikani Chester whose contract was coming to an end.

“We have mutually agreed not to renew his contract. We are grateful for the contribution he has made to the company when he was our player. We wish him the best of luck in his future footballing endeavours.”

Chester and Wanderers have been discussing the extension over the past week without any breakthrough.


In an interview Thursday, Chester confirmed that he was set to start looking for a new team.

“I had a meeting with the team but we have failed to agree on terms and conditions. I am free to join any team here or elsewhere. I will forever be grateful for the love and support,’’ he said.

The former Mighty Tigers midfielder also dismissed reports that he was making unrealistic demands.

“I have played for the club during difficult times. I know what being a Wanderers player means. So make no mistake, I respect the club a lot,’’ he added.

Reports suggest that Wanderers also met other players over the possibility of renewing their respective contracts ahead of the new season.

Chester re-joined Wanderers after parting ways with Cezch third-tier side MFK Vyskov in April 2021.

After returning to Wanderers, he signed a contract which had a clause stating that he would be allowed to join a foreign team at any time.

The Nomads have been the busiest team during the ongoing transfer window, having signed winger Gaddie Chirwa from Blue Eagles, Civil Service United striker Christopher Kumwembe, Mphatso Kamanga of Karonga United and the Mighty Tigers duo of goalkeeper Dalitso Nkhungwa and defender Emmanuel Nyirenda.

They are also in the process of releasing some players ahead of the 2023 season.

The Lali Lubani Road side finished the 2022 season with the Airtel Top 8 Cup after beating rivals Nyasa Big Bullets 5-3 on post-match penalties after a goal-less stalemate in regulation time.
