Mulenga tells why he joined Wits


Mulenga told Zambia’s Post newspaper that he got the offer from Wits at the beginning of the year but was reluctant to sign because of the pending move to Maccabi Petach-Tikva of Israel.

He said he later opted to sign for the Premiership side because the deal was not very different from what he would have signed for in Israel.

“My agent has been slow in putting things in place so I opted to sign for Bidvest Wits because the offer is just the same,” he said.

The 2007 Africa Young Player of the Year said he was unable to promise his new club anything because he would still be a player at Pretoria University until July 1.

“I will only move to Wits on July 1. Right now, I’m still a player at Pretoria University and I can’t promise anything because I have to train with them and see how I will fit in the team,” Mulenga said.

Meanwhile, Ian Bakala who was earlier supposed to go to Israel with Mulenga, says he is still awaiting clearance of his visa.

Bakala said he was not sure when he would leave as his visa had taken long to be cleared.“I don’t know when I will go because I’m still waiting for the visa to be cleared,” Bakala said.
