Zambian club set to sign free agent Watenga


Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Ismail Watenga could be on his way to Zambia’s NAPSA Stars Football Club.

The Zambian side is keen to scoop Watenga who is currently a free agent since leaving Sofapaka of Kenya early last month.

The former Vipers shot stopper has also been linked to a possible return to Kitende where he left for Ethiopia Coffee (Bunna) in 2018.

He is set to become the fourth Ugandan ever to play NAPSA Stars after Jimmy Bageya, Hakim Ssenkumba and most recently Geoffrey Serunkuma.

National Pension Scheme Authority (NAPSA) Stars are second on the 18-team Zambian League table with 35 points accumulated from 18 games played.

The imminent move would also see him join other Ugandans in Zambia in Umar Kasumba (ZESCO United), Mathias Kigonya (Forest Rangers), Shafik Bakaki (Nkana FC), Brian Bwete (Mufulira Wanderers) and Paul Musamali (Buildcon FC).

Watenga is capped 19 times for the Uganda Cranes since 2014.
