Newly crowned Airtel Top 8 Cup champions Mighty Mukuru Wanderers have completed the signing of Civil Service United striker Christopher Kumwembe on a three-year deal.
The Nomads will pay the Lilongwe side K4 million. Kumwembe becomes the second player to join Wanderers in a space of two weeks after Mphatso Kamanga joined from Karonga United.
The versatile attacker was unveiled on Saturday just hours before the Airtel Top 8 Cup final against Nyasa Big Bullets in which Wanderers triumphed 5-3 on post-match penalties.
In an interview Sunday, Wanderers Commercialisation officer Clement Stambuli was coy on the possibility of signing more players.
“We announce after we meet the technical panel,” Stambuli said.
Civil General Secretary Ronald Chiwaula confirmed that they sold Kumwembe to Wanderers at K4 million.
“It was a good deal and we are happy. We wish the player all the best,” Chiwaula said
After his unveiling on Saturday, Kumwembe said it was a dream come true to join Wanderers.
“This is a good move for me as a player. I hope I will advance my career at Wanderers,” Kumwembe said.
Kumwembe can play as a winger or striker. He is good at dribbling but his final sometimes betrays him.
He was on the verge of joining Black Leopards in August this year but the deal flopped due to passport hitches.
The Nomads are also on the verge of signing Blue Eagles striker Gaddie Chirwa and Emmanuel Nyirenda from Mighty Wakawaka Tigers.
