Three more Malawian players—Robin Ngalande, Gerald Phiri Jnr and Micium Mhone—have acquired their work permits and will now be eligible to feature for their new clubs.
Ngalande is now with Platinum Stars while Phiri and Mhone are set for a new lease of life at Bidvest Wits and Jomo Cosmos respectively.
However, veteran forward Esau Kanyenda is still waiting for his permit.
Flames coach Ernest Mtawali confirmed that the trio’s permits are now ready.
“The process of acquiring work permits is now complicated and takes a bit of time and it is relieving that three players not have their work permits ready which means they will be available for selection,” said Mtawali.
And speaking from Polokwane in South Africa yesterday, Kanyenda said: “Mine is not yet ready and it is a bit frustrating just to be training without knowing when exactly the papers will be ready.
“Nevertheless, the authorities have given me an assurance that it should be out next week.”
Midfielder Robert Ng’ambi only started playing last week after acquiring a permanent residence permit while Limbikani Mzava got his work permit 10 days ago.
