Zakazaka returns to Bullets

Former South Africa based professional Jimmy Zakazaka has re-joined Bullets after plying his professional career since 2007.

Zakazaka, who was nicknamed ‘Weapon of Mass Destruction’ by Zambian football commentator legend Dennis Liwewe, is training with the club.

Bullets team manager Fundi Akidu confirmed the development, saying the player would  be vital in the People’s Team revival.

Akidu said Zakazaka bounced to action for the club with a game against newly promoted team Chikwawa United on Sunday in which Bullets won 2-1.


“I think Zakazaka has come to stay at Bullets because we have been talking to him and it seems he has returned for good,” Akidu said of his former Azam Tigers teammate.

He joined Free State Stars after his compatriot coach Kinnah Phiri rope him and helped the team with 14 league goals during the two seasons he played for the team.

He moved on to play for Bay United where he played for three seasons and scored 11 goals.

He also played for African Wanderers and Thanda Zulu Royal before moving to Mozambique’s Costol de Sol during pre-season but has failed to break through.

In another development wayward striker Grant Lungu has also returned to the club.

He announced his return in style with a goal against Chikwawa United in a friendly game on Sunday.

Team manager Akidu said Grant and Zakazaka’s return would offer the coaching panel many options for selection befitting a big club of Bullets’ status.

“We have a good mix of experienced players and up-and-coming ones,” he said.

“This is a good because we are going to have a good competition in all departments.”

Bullets have reengaged  former expatriate coach Nsazwarwimo Ramadhan .
