Kaizer Chiefs have finally unveilled Ugandan defender Godfrey Walusimbi .
It took Amakhosi a reported fee of USD 100,000 to land the signature of the highly rated For Mahia defender
The 29-year-old Ugandan left-back penned a three-year deal which will end on 30 June 2021.
Walusimbi‚ who will wear jersey No.29‚ the club revealed‚ will compete with current incumbent Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya and Philani Zulu for Chiefs’ left-back position.
The player‚ bought from Kenya’s Gor Mahia‚ was quoted as saying: “I’ve always known that Kaizer Chiefs is a great football club.
“Chiefs play for honours and that’s a positive mindset that every player dreams of. Just like every footballer‚ I always want to move one step ahead ”
Chiefs’ football manager Bobby Motaung said Walusimbi can add value to Amakhosi.
“It has been an engaging process to finalise this move. At the end we are happy the process has been completed‚ and the player is available to play. We wish him all of the best with us‚” Motaung said.
Walusimbi’s signing follows the acquisitions last week of centreback Mario Booysen from Ajax Cape Town and forward Lebogang Manyama from Konyaspor in Turkey‚ as Chiefs have made a number of their signings late for the 2018-19 season.
