Nyasa Big Bullets import 2 Kenyan defenders


Nyasa Big Bullets have crossed the borders in search of reinforcements to beef up their squad following the departure of some players.

The People’s Team have started assessing Kenyan defenders Collins Odhiambo Okumu, 25 and Clyde Senaji Navade, 26 who recently arrived in the country and started pre-season training at Kamuzu University of Health Sciences Sports Complex in Blantyre.

Bullets Chief Administration Officer Albert Chigoga confirmed arrival of the players but refused to shed more light.


“They are experienced players. The head coach and his technical panel are assessing them. He should be able to make his recommendation before the team travels to Mangochi for further pre-season training,” Chigoga said.

Bullets Supporters Director Stone Mwamadi has hailed the team’s management for inviting the players for trials, hoping that once successful they will bridge the gap the team has in defence.

“We have captain John Lanjesi who is hardly available while another defender Haji Wali was transfer listed. We have two recognised centre backs in Nixon Nyasulu and Kesten Simbi so this is a welcome development,” he said.


Okumu played for Kenya’s top side Tusker in 2018 before moving to AFC Leopards SC in 2019 while Navade’s latest club in Kenya was Posta Ranger.

However, a former Bullets player Kuruwa Ngwira said the team should have tried local talent before exploring talent in other countries.

“They should not sign them just because they are foreign players. The duo should successfully pass the trials before they are signed. Recently, Bullets terminated Isaac Badu’s [Ghanaian] contract just because the panel did not do an honest job during the trials,” he said.

Bullets have lost strikers Hassan Kajoke and Babatunde Adepoju to Silver Strikers and Venda Academy in South Africa respectively.
