After a period of speculation, the defender has been announced on a three year deal joining from Gor Mahia.
Upon completing the move, the left back indicated he was delighted to join Kaizer Chiefs.
I’ve always known that Kaizer Chiefs is a great football club,” reacts Walusimbi. “Chiefs play for honours and that’s a positive mindset that every player dreams of. Just like every footballer, I always want to move one step further in my career and I think my move to Chiefs is one such step.”
Football Manager Bobby Motaung welcomed Walusimbi and shared his views about ‘Wazza’ as the Ugandan is affectionately known.
“It has been an engaging process to finalise this move,” says Motaung. “At the end we are happy the process has been completed, and the player is available to play. We wish him all of the best with us.” said Motaung as quoted by the club website.
Walusimbi has previously played for Gor Mahia, SC Villa, Vipers SC and Don Bosco in DR Congo.
At Kaizer Chiefs he will be donning jersey 29. Walusimbi joins David Obua, Sula Matovu and Ivan Bukenya as other Ugandans that have played for the club.
