TNM Super League new entrants, Baka City Football Club, have appointed veteran Oscar Kaunda as their head coach.
Bentry Jembe, who is chairperson for the Karonga based rookies, who are dubbed ‘The Clever Boys’, made the announcement Sunday at the team’s office, saying Kaunda is the right man to lead the team.
“We have appointed Oscar Kaunda as our head coach and Davie Muyombe will be his assistant. We have given them a target to ensure that the team is not relegated in the first season of the 2024 TNM Super League and we believe with Kaunda’s experince, this mission will be achieved.
“We have left the task to identify potential players through trials in the coach’s hands and I would like all fans of Baka City to support him and his staff so that the team should bring them joy like they did in the Northern Region Premier Division,” said Jembe.
On his part, Kaunda said he was excited for being considered for the post which he described as an exciting opportunity.
“Every coach expects his team to perform well and together with my coaching staff, management of the team and indeed the whole Baka City FC family, I promise to deliver what is expected of me,” Kaunda said.
Before joining Baka City FC, Kaunda was coaching Civil Service United last season where he mutually parted ways with the club in January.
He has also had stints with Mighty Mukuru Wanderers, Karonga United FC and Kabwafu United.
