Cape Town - Orlando Pirates' recent signing Augustine Mulenga is on the verge of making his Absa Premiership debut for the Sea Robbers in the club's next match against Chippa United.
Mulenga, who signed from Zambia's Zanaco on a three-year deal, only arrived at the club in late January as he had international duties to complete with Chipolopolo at the 2018 African Nations Championship where he scored three goals.
Nonetheless, the 28-year-old is highly rated and was his country's Player of the Year last season. As such, it always appeared it would be a matter of time before he was handed his debut and it is now on the horizon.
The player has already been granted a work permit and could feature against the Chilli Boys later this month. Coach Milutin Sredojevic had earlier opted against including him in the Nedbank Cup victory over Ajax Cape Town last weekend.
However, with at least another two weeks of training time to come before Bucs face Chippa on February 25, it seems he will make his bow for the Sea Robbers at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.
The forward joins countryman Justin Shonga in the ranks of the Soweto giants, with the striker already starting to make impact for Sredojevic's men.
