So, this is it. Mighty Wanderers playmaker Joseph ‘Shakira’ Kamwendo has signed a one-year contract with top Mozambican club Desportivo Liga Maculmana.
Broker of the deal James Pondomale of Intersport Mozambique and the Mozambican club’s director Rafiq Seedat confirmed the development on Sunday.
Pondomale said the move follows fruitful discussions which the club’s management had with Kamwendo at the weekend.
“I can confirm that Joseph has signed a year’s contract subject to renewal based on his performance,” said Pondomale.
He also said the Mozambican club will now enter into negotiations with Nomads.
“Of course, according to Joseph, the agreement that was there with Wanderers was that he would be released once he found a foreign team, but we are trying to make arrangements that they [Wanderers] should get a little something from the deal,” he said.
Pondomale also claimed that his client is excited at the prospect of joining Maculmana.
“I am in constant touch with Joseph and he is very excited.
Seedat said: “From what we saw, Joseph is a fantastic player and we could not think twice.”
Kamwendo will join other Malawians such as Simplex Nthala, Zicco Mkanda, Gerald Nkungula, Emmanuel Chipatala, Sankhani Nyirenda, Robson Banda, Danga Mlelemba and Lewis Minjale who also play in the Mozambican top-flight league.
