Ugandan midfielder Hashim Sempala is set to join Zambia Premier League side Kabwe Warriors a day after leaving Kenya’s Tusker FC.
Sempala who was also doubling as Tusker’s captain for the last two seasons, left the Brewers on Tuesday afternoon after his contract expired.
He is reportedly on his way to Zambia to complete a move to Kabwe Warriors.
The combative midfielder played an instrumental role in guiding Tusker to return to continental football for the final time since 2016.
He was also part of the Tusker team that won a domestic double under coach Paul Nkata in 2016.
Swift Sports understand, has been a transfer target for Tanzania’s Kagera Sugar as well.
A move to Kabwe Warriors would link Sempala to fellow Ugandan and left back Shafik Batambuze.
Kabwe Warriors are in preparations to represent Zambia in next season’s CAF Confederation Cup after finishing 4th on the FAZ/Premier League table last season.
Sempala has previously turned out for Express, URA FC and BUL FC in Uganda and had a brief stint at Gor Mahia before returning to Tusker in August 2019.
Kabwe Warriors is a former club of Ugandan goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan. They host their league games at the Godfrey Chitalu Stadium in Kabwe.
Kabwe have won five league titles as well as five Zambian Cups. However their last appearance on the continent dates way back in 2002.
