Mpulula left on Saturday for B Licence course to run from April 23 to May 11 2012 at Hennef, according to FAM chief executive officer Suzgo Nyirenda.
His departure leaves Tigers without a coach as they recently fired its assistant coach Trevor Kajawa. Tigersâ€™ general secretary Geoffrey Kachale on Saturday admitted the dilemma.
â€œI have asked the technical director Robin Alufandika to give me a report by Tuesday on who will be in charge of the team. But having said that, we have no regrets for having let go Kajawa,â€ Kachale said.
â€œWe also need a person who Mpulula will be comfortable to leave the team with. McDonald Yobe, who is a qualified coach, is also our apprentice. He comes to gain some knowledge but there is no formal agreement.â€
Alufandika could not be reached for a comment.
In Germany, Mpulula will be joined by other African coaches such as South Africaâ€™s Black Leopards assistant trainer Abel Makhubele and Zimbabweans Langton Giwa Sithethelelwe Sibanda.
Organised jointly by German Football Association (DFB) and the German Foreign Ministry (FFO), the B certificate enables coaches to participate in the A-Level Course, a further step on the way to acquiring a professional coaching license.
