SABC Sport have revealed that striker Augustine Mulenga has left AmaZulu as part of a mass exodus by the club, as earlier confirmed by president Sandile Zungu.

The highly-rated Zambian forward joined Usuthu from Orlando Pirates in October 2020 as part of the big changes enforced by businessman Zungu, when he took ownership of the KwaZulu-Natal outfit from the Sokhela family.

However, less than two years later, Mulenga is understood to now be a free agent and ready for a fresh start elsewhere in the Premier Soccer League.

Zungu told Ukhozi FM on Wednesday that about 13 players would be leaving the club as Brandon Truter – now confirmed to be the permanent coach on a two-year contract – welcomes new faces, including Pirates winger Gabadinho Mhango.

As previously reported by SABC Sport, defender Tapelo Xoki is also on his way out and headed to Gauteng to join Pirates – this having also since been confirmed by Zungu.

Mulenga leaves having played over 50 games for AmaZulu, and his representatives will now work at finding him a new club ahead of the 2022/23 season.

The speedy attacker arrived in South Africa from Zanaco FC in 2018 to join the Buccaneers, who were then coached by Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredejovic and Rulani Mokwena.
