Augustine Mulenga joins Orlando Pirates

Zambian winger Augustine Mulenga has signed for South African side Orlando Pirates.

The 28 year old winger will be the second Zambian player at the Soweto giants.

Striker Justin Shonga is the other Zambian.

Speaking about the transfer, Club administrative officer Floyd Mbele said: “We are delighted to have finally secured the services of Augustine. He is an accomplished player who has all the qualities to make an immediate impact at the club.

“I would like to thank Zanaco management for their professionalism during negotiations.”

Mulenga is expected to touch down in South Africa next week following his participation in the 2018 CHAN tournament in Morocco where he was Zambia’s top goal scorer in the competition. Chipolopolo were knocked out in the quarterfinals of the competition by Sudan this past weekend.

  1. Oh 28 (31) you still have some three years of football in you if you remain dedicated and disciplined. Less or no alcohol, longer periods of sleep and ignoring those Soweto chicks will keep you in shape and earn good retirement money in SA. Congratulations and Godspeed!!

  2. If he maintains his high levels he will be a big hit in the PSL. Just has to stay away from the girls. South African women love football stars in South Africa so him and his wife should be closer than ever.

  3. I have no doubt in your abilities keep your head up dont be intimidated infact your quality is european level, but a few who have taken that route have dissapointed me especially Rodrick Kabwe who in my opinion has failed considering the quality he had prior to his move to capetown.

    • Rodrick Kabwe is a big disappointment. He shows no hunger to excel, putting up very passive performances when on the pitch leading to him being a regular bench warmer. Zambian fans say South African PSL finishes you which is nonsense. Football now is about aggression, skill, strength and ambition. If you do not have these qualities you will fail in South African and will also fail in Europe. Nothing to do with the league.

      • Ngake Soccer has politics and game time contributes to the growth of players hence the national team, don’t you remember Pitso when He was Bafana Bafana Coach telling the PSL Coaches to give local players more game time if they were to develop they Bafana Bafana. Don’t you remember what Pep Guardiola did with Barcelona which ended up benefiting the Spanish National Team. Most Coaches do it but in South Africa and North Africa they over do it and this affects foreign players.

  4. Good luck to Augustine Mulenga with the Pirates! He earned this chance by playing well in Zambia and at the CHAN tournament. This is yet another example of how the CHAN can help players earn an opportunity abroad, just as Given Singaluma did. Several Zambian players, most notably James Chamanga and of course Collins Mbesuma, have had great success in the South African league. Do any of my fellow Zamfoot followers know how Emmanuel Mayuka is doing in Israel? Is he playing at all? He is, coincidentally, about the same age as Mulenga. His career should not be over.
