Zesco United have re-signed striker Jackson Mwanza who was a free agent after his three year contract was terminated after one season by Sudanese club El Merreikh.
A statement published on the club’s official website on Tuesday reads: “Zesco United has signed its former striker Jackson Mwanza after he attended unsuccessful trials in South Africa. Mwanza returned to the country in May after Sudan side El Merriekh terminated his 3 year contract.”
In a separate interview with supersport.com club Public Relations and Media Officer Katebe Chengo said Mwanza had been successfully registered with the Football Association of Zambia as a Zesco United player.
Two second half goals were enough to give Burundi’s Vital’O the 2013 Cecafa Kagame Club Championship title after stopping APR FC (Rwanda) in the final on Monday night in northern Darfur, Sudan.
Skipper Amisi Tambwe and Christian Mbirizi finished off with headed goals to give Vital’O their first ever trophy in the Cecafa region since Burundi joined Cecafa in 1994.
Tambwe who finished top scorer of the championship with six goals scored in the 64th minute before Mbirizi wrapped it up three minutes later.
APR’s German coach Andreas Spier made some changes after 70 minutes, but still failed to get the goals. Spier said they conceded two goals because of poor defending, but added that the tournament was an eye opener to his youthful side.
