Burundian striker Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana cries foul about Kaizer Chiefs treatment


Bimenyimana spent three weeks training with Chiefs and has been kept on the waiting list since then.

"I cannot keep waiting for Chiefs forever, so I have to move on," he tells KickOff.

"The next team that I will play for will not be from Africa.

"I thought everything went well while I was training with them, but I don’t know what happened in the end because I was meant to stay there for two weeks but they kept me for another week.

"They have now since put me on the waiting list.

"I think they should have been honest with me and tell me the truth rather than keep me waiting.

"They are not professional.

"They should have been able to tell me the truth that they will not sign me so that I just move on without thinking of waiting for them as they have done now.

"During the three weeks that I spent with them, I blocked out other options because I was sure that I will get a deal there.

"Now, it feels like being with them was just a waste of time.

"I wish them all the best in the new season," says Bimenyimana.

SuperSport United have also shown interest but he has turned down the option of coming in for another trial with a DStv Premiership club.

"I don’t want to go there and do trials again. I have refused to do trials again," he adds.

Bimenyimana has played in Rwanda, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, and Kazakhstan, and then signed in Ukraine at the beginning of the year but couldn’t proceed with the contract due to the invasion by Russia.

Chiefs remain in the market for a forward with their other target Musa Kamara failing to travel during the off-season. 

Arthur Zwane also noted that Bimenyimana was what they were looking for.
