Sofapaka sign Zimbabwean hitman



The Sofapaka spending spree in the January transfer window continues with the Tusker Premier League giants recruiting former Zimbabwe international striker Obadiah Tarumbwa.

Tarumbwa has been signed from Cyprus second division side Ermis Aradippou, and according to Sofapaka president Elly Kalekwa, the player has agreed on a two-year deal with the Nairobi-based side.

Kalekwa is confident Tarumbwa will add value to his outfit in the upcoming campaign.

“After days of talks with the Cyprus team, I can confirm that we have completed Obadiah Tarumbwa’s signing. At some point it seemed difficult but we persisted because I have watched the player and I know what he can do and the value he can add to the team,” said Tarumbwa.

“We have also agreed terms with the player and I can confirm he will be with Sofapaka for the next two years. He did not come on the cheap but going by the player’s experience and ability I know he is a good bargain for Sofapaka as we eye better fortunes this year. I have no doubts that he will do well in the KPL,” concluded Kalekwa.

The player arrived in Kenya last month, ready for the team’s pre-season commitments. He will meet his new team- mates when the club resumes training after the festive holidays on Monday.
