Burundian keeper Justin Ndikumana is set to join Mombasa based Kenyan Premier League side, Bandari after parting ways with Sofapaka.
The Burundian international who was part of the Swallows team at the African Cup of Nations in Egypt is among nine players who have left Sofapaka owing to the team’s financial struggles.
The rest are; Stephen Waruru, Dennis Odhiambo, Mousa Omar, Pistone Mutamba, Cliff Kasuti, Mike Oduor, Ibrahim Kajuba and Umaru Kasumba.
Ndikumana has now found a new home and has even been included in Bandari’s CAF Confederation Cup squad.
The Dockers will play Sudanese side Al Ahly Shendi in a first-leg preliminary round match on Saturday at Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani.
Ndikumana will replace Kenyan international Farouk Shikalo who quit the club for Tanzanian giants, Yanga after the African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
“Ndikumana has joined us. Everything has been agreed on and we have even submitted his name as part of our Caf Confederation Cup squad.
He is a quality keeper who will obviously improve the team,” a member of the Dockers’ technical revealed.
Ndikumana joined Sofapaka at the start of the 2018/19 campaign and went on to become their first-choice keeper.
In March, he became the second keeper ever to bag the prestigious Kenyan Premier League player of the month award.
