Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs have officially announced the completion of Godfrey Walusimbi’s transfer from Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia.
Walusimbi, 29, has been handed a three-year deal by Amakhosi until 30 June 2021.
The Ugandan left back has been given jersey number 29 and expressed his excitement at joining the Premier Soccer League giants.
He said during his unveiling: “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 further in my career and I think my move to Chiefs is one such step.”
His transfer brings to an end a four-year association with Gor who he joined in 2014. The move was delayed after Gor accused Chiefs of tapping up the fullback-cum-winger, and were considering reporting the South African side to Fifa.
“I have already adapted at Chiefs,” he added.
“It is easier to adapt in a professional environment. I look forward to working hard and contribute to the team.”
Football Manager Bobby Motaung welcomed Walusimbi and shared his views about the Ugandan saying: “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.”
The move is reported to have cost Chiefs Kshs. 15 million.
