Walusimbi seals move to Don Bosco



Godfrey Walusimbi becomes the second Ugandan to complete a switch to a DRC side following his move to CS Don Bosco on Monday.

The Vipers and Uganda Cranes left back joins midfielder Mike Mutyaba, who completed his move to TP Mazembe at the weekend.

Vipers secretary Harunah Kyobe dismissed earlier reports that they had sold Walusimbi to TP Mazembe while confirming the latest shift.

“Walusimbi has signed for CS Don Bosco in DRC for five years,” said Kyobe on Monday. No financial details have been revealed.

“TP Mazembe initially invited him,” added Kyobe, “But the coach (Mazembe) wasn't impressed with his (Walusimbi’s) structure. That’s how Don Bosco joined the race to sign him.”

In his early 20s, Walusimbi is part of the instrumental Uganda Cranes crust. He scored Uganda’s equalizer in the 1-1 draw 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Senegal in Kampala in June.

His stature is made up for by his composure in possession and quick and resolute defending.
