Former Gor Mahia defender, Godfrey Walusimbi, has disclosed the behind the scenes intrigues that resulted in his acrimonious departure from South African top side Kaizer Chiefs.


“They (Chiefs) told me that because I’m a national team player, I needed to get playing time and therefore I should accept going to Chippa United on loan,” Walusimbi said.

“This was on the last day of transfers. I asked them why they didn’t tell me early enough for me to prepare myself because they knew this was their plan all along,” he added.

“It (the departure) didn’t break me. I just came home and continued to work hard and good enough the (Uganda) coach (Sébastien Desabre) knows my qualities, and here I am. I am hungrier than ever,” he said.

Walusimbi controversially left Gor Mahia in August 2018 after the Kenyan champions accused him of unlawfully negotiating a contract with Chiefs behind their back.
