Silver Strikers reject Blessings Tembo


Unsettled midfielder, Blessings Tembo, is likely to continue with life on the sidelines as his former club, Silver Strikers, is not keen on re-signing him.

Tembo left Silver in the pre-season under controversial circumstances and signed for Be Forward Wanderers ahead of the Nomads’ Caf Champions League matches against Democratic Republic of Congo’s AS Vita.

But he terminated the contract with just days before the kickoff of the new season, claiming Wanderers did not fulfil their obligations.


Silver General Secretary, Thabo Chakaka-Nyirenda, said there is no place for Tembo at Area 47.

“There are a number of factors that we considered as a club. Firstly, our quota is full so it meant we were supposed to release one player.

“Secondly, Tembo betrayed us and he did not show loyalty to the club. He left when he was captain, so we do not want to set a precedent that we condone indiscipline at the club,” Chakaka-Nyirenda said.


He said the decision was made in consultation with relevant stakeholders at the club including the board of directors and the technical panel.

Tembo and his manager, Jimmy Linje, could not answer their mobile phones Sunday.
