Lesotho Tectician Warns Uganda Cranes On Arrival

A delegation of 26 people (players and officials) from Lesotho arrived in Uganda on Thursday afternoon ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers first leg at Namboole.

The group arrived at Entebbe International Airport at 2:30 pm aboard South African Airways on flight.

They were received by the FUFA protocol team that had Mansoor Kimumwe, Richard Nandigobe among others.

The team is accommodated at Imperial Royal Hotel in Kampala and will conduct their final session at Mandela National Stadium this evening.

Moses Maliehe, the Lesotho national team head coach sounded confident on arrival; “Uganda is top of the group but we shall give them a run for their money despite the fact that we respect them.”

The visiting delegation will miss experienced players as Bokang Sello and Lesia Thetsane who did not travel to Uganda.

Bantu Football Club left-back Bokang will miss the game because of suspension having accumulated two yellow cards while Thetsane has been held back due to academic commitments.

The two countries face off in a double header, first this Saturday at Namboole Stadium before squaring off three days later in Maseru city, three days later at the Setsoto Stadium. Lesotho played a friendly game with Free Stars in South Africa and they lost 9-0, before travelling to Uganda.

Kaizer Chiefs officially announced on the their twitter page that they have parted ways with the left back who joined the team from Gor Mahia of Kenya.
“Walusimbi opted to go back home to Uganda. We would like to thank him for his contribution to Kaizer Chiefs and wish him all the best,” Kaizer Chiefs stated on their twitter handle.


Walusimbi arrived at the start of the current season but his stint at the Amakhosi has been very short. He made 17 apperances for the club.
Walusimbi is among the most talented left backs you can ever admirer but his professional career is questionable especially when it comes to discipline.
