Mukamba concludes Wits deal

Mukamba concludes Wits deal
News from Johannesburg is that reigning Zimbabwe Castle Lager premiership Footballer of the Year Denver Mukamba has completed his move to Bidvest Wits in the South African ABSA Premier Soccer League.

The former Dynamos kingpin arrived in South Africa over the weekend, with the view of undergoing medicals at Wits before signing for the club after attending two successful trials with the Students in 2012.

The first time Mukamba passed the trials, his move could have been scuppered by the change in the Wits Technical department, with Roger De Sa, now with ABSA premiership champions Orlando Pirates, givning way for Antonio Lopez.

The Warriors midfielder then returned for a second spell of trials now under Lopez, leading to the club signing him, despite Lopez himself having left his job to pave way for former Bafana Bafana coach and 1996 AFCON winning coach with South Africa, Clive Barker.

It appears like Mukamba's medical examinations went very well at Wits, leading to the team snapping up their long-time target.

Wits must surely have an eye for golden talent. They have snapped up a young man who is likely to set alight the ABSA premiership with hearty performances. Denver was surely not crowned Footballer of the Year for nothing. He has been consistent performer with Dynamos in the Castle Lager league for the past few seasons.

Dynamos have now lost three key players to South African topflight clubs within the space of a year. The first one to leave was trusted gunman Cuthbert Malajila who joined modest Maritzburg United, while Takesure Chinyama was snapped up by champions Pirates.

Mukamba's intended move to Wits was subject of intense debate in Zimbabwe, with some analysts arguing that the youngster's talents are good enough for a bigger soccer stage like European topflight leagues.

That Mukamba is the next big thing to happen in African football is certainly not an exaggeration. One needs to watch the player in action to understand where those who predict a bright future for the new Wits man are coming from.

Mukamba's move to South Africa means Dynamos' loss of a key man in their quest to redeem their battered image in the CAF Champions League campaign, after they were humiliated the last time they participated in the competition by Esperance of Tunisia.

At Wits, Mukamba will join former Dynamos defender Thomas Sweswe and Zimbabwe international defender Tinashe Nengomasha.
