Kachule (marked in red) makes the cut into the Mozambique squad.

The win over Angola yesterday has only patched the wounds of fans but some Malawian players have not been convinced and have left the team.

Reports that Malawi24 has indicate that Malawi national Joseph Kachule has switched over to neighbouring country Mozambique, with his first feature being at the ongoing COSAFA Cup.

The former Silver Strikers, Civo United, Escom United and Epac player has made it into Mozambique’s final squad.

The player left Malawi some years ago for Chibuto FC of Mozambique where he has rejuvenated his career to make it into the Mamba’s squad.

According to information made available to Malawi24, it’s easy for foreign players to change names in Mozambique once they settle down.

Commenting on the development, renowned football analyst Enos Chatama has advised Football Association of Malawi (FAM) to monitor all players abroad.

“We have to make sure that all our players abroad are being monitored. We need to have databases so that we are able to track down our assets playing outside the country,” he told Malawi24.

Joseph Kachule a Mozambican?

He added: “I am even surprised to hear that he is in Mozambique. He is a veteran, he has played for quite some time and he was going to the end of his career but he has revamped his form and is doing very well.”

Kachule is not the only Malawian player to have changed his nationality. According to our investigations, former Silver Strikers youth product Jimmy Ukonde has also made it into Mozambique’s final squad for the Southern African showpiece.

Lots of Malawian players flock to Mozambique in search of greener pasture and they are not closely monitored, there is a possibility of losing them to our neighbours.
