Former Warriors coach Rahman Gumbo has been appointed head coach by Palapye-based Botswana Premiership side Morupule Wanderers on a two-year deal.
Gumbo, who coached Highlanders back home, got his new job less than a month after parting ways with another top side in Botswana, Sua Flamingoes.
In a statement issued on Thursday, Morupule Wanderers expressed confidence that Gumbo can make the club competitive in the local top-flight league. It said:
This communique serves to announce that Morupule Wanderers Football Club has appointed Mr Rahman Gumbo to the position of the club head coach subject to work visa requirements.
Mr Gumbo has joined Bafana Ba Magala on a two-year contract. Mr. Gumbo has a wealth of coaching experience in football that is booed by many coaching accolades in Botswana, in his home country of Zimbabwe, and abroad.
The club believes Mr Gumbo to be the right head coach who can deliver on its mandate and its ambitions to compete at the high echelons of domestic football.
We pledge our utmost support to Mr Gumbo and expect the same from our supporters, stakeholders, and well-wishers.
We wish the head coach a fruitful and exciting stay at Bafana Ba Magala.
Morupule Wanderers are in eighth position in the standings with 11 points, 14 points behind leaders Gaborone United.
