“I will not be new in the Bullets technical set-up having served as technical committee head last season alongside Gilbert Chirwa, Thom Kazembe and Enos Chatama.
“Kananji is already doing a good job and it will just be a matter of patching up here and there,” he said.
Kananji has left Bullets on position three in the TNM Super League where they have won nine games and lost only one. Last weekend, he led the People’s Team to their third Carlsberg Cup glory
While Yasin has left Nyasa United struggling on position 17 in the Masters Security southern region premier league.
In a statement, Chigoga has wished both the new coach and Kananji good working relationship.
“Nyasa Big Bullets is highly indebted for the services of Eliya Kananji for bringing the team to its current status as champions of
Carlsberg Cup and good position in the super league. However we (Bullets Executive) wish both Rogers and Eliya all the best as they
jointly steer the team to the greater heights,” said Chigoga.
