Ntege Ivan left for Botswana on Saturday and he is currently holding talks with the club in Gabarone
Its believed that Ntege’s contract had expired with KCCA and nothing was yielded from their negotiations. He has been at the KCCA ranks for a period close to 7 years
In case all goes well, Ntege Ivan will join new head coach Nicola Kavawazozic from Serbia and Tshevo Matete who also signed for the club from Baroka FC last month.
Ntege has previously played for Mutundwe Lions before joining KCCA FC, he has also been a key figure for the national side in both African cup qualifiers and African Nations Championships campaigns.
He is also tipped to replace Malawi international central midfielder Lawrence Majawa who departed the club last month for greener pastures.
