Kamuzu Barracks football club is still monitoring the recovery process of the leg injury sustained by their goalkeeper Bonage Lweya before he returns on the field of play.
Lweya rose to the lime right of top-flight football in the country for the Malawi defence force (MDF) side during the 2019 season as he stood in between the post for KB following the departure of Lemani Nthala who went for peacekeeping mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
With his brilliant performance, Lweya won a number of man of the match awards and earned a number of call ups to the Malawi national football team but finished the season on a bad note as he sustained a leg injury which has a plaster of Paris (POV).
According to one of the officials from the 2016 TNM super league champions Prince Majiga, the goalkeeper is still undergoing a recovery process that he might not be pushed in between the sticks if he will not be declared fully fit by the doctors.
“As a club, we are still monitoring his recovery process to see if he will be ready to play for the club once the season kicks off. His POP was removed but he is still in pain here and there but some positivity is there as he has done some light training to put him in shape.
“In case the season kicks off soon, we will not be pressurised to risk him to play for the club but we will wait for the recommendations from the doctors to declare him fully fit,” said Mangani.
In Lweya’s absence, Kamuzu Barracks will depend on the services of former Malawi under 20 national football team and Civo service united goalkeeper Hastings Banda who has joined the club this year after completing military training.
