Following his exploits at the 2018 CAF African Nations Championship in Morocco, Zambian midfielder Augustine Mulenga has joined Orlando Pirates.
The South African Premier Soccer League giants have been impressed by the Chipolopolo forward and has joined from Zanaco FC.
The 2017 Zambia Footballer of the Year has completed his switch on a three-year deal, as he will reunite with fellow countryman Justin Shonga.
“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,” Pirates administrative officer Floyd Mbele said on the club's website.
“I would like to thank Zanaco management for their professionalism during negotiations.”
Mulenga, who was Zambia’s stop scorer at 2018 CHAN tournament with three goals, follows Shonga who joined from Nkwazi last August.
