DRC forward Tshisungu joins KCCA FC on a two-year deal


Forward Tshisungu Kankonde has penned a two-year deal with Uganda Premier League side KCCA FC from 2022 – 2024, the club has confirmed.

Tshisungu, 23, hails from Kananga province in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and has previously played for AS Dauphin Noir de Goma.

Tshisungu has also played for Congolese sides Etoile Jaune de Bukavu, Union Sportive Tshinkunku de Kananga and Academie Club de Kananga.

The gigantic center forward won the golden boot at Union Sportive Tshinkunku de Kananga in 2018. He has also previously won the best player and top scorer award at Academie Club de Kananga in 2017 and 2015 respectively.

Tshisungu delights in the move and looks forward to his stint with the Kasasiro Boys with the 2022/23 football season around the corner.

“I am so happy to join a big club like KCCA FC which is also respected on the continent. Back in DRC, this club is known for its great history and when the opportunity to join the club was presented to me I could not resist. I have read so much about the history of this club and I have tasked myself to add value and history to this great club,” Tshisungu told the club website.

“I am certain the club and the technical team will push me to my ultimate best and that is exactly what I want to acheive. I know some players in the squad like John Revita who previously played in The Democratic Republic of Congo and I am sure I will settle in well. The Coach has already shared with me his expectations and I am looking forward to playing with my new mates,” the forward added.

Kankonde will be competing for a spot in the squad with the likes of Sadat Anaku, Brian Aheebwa, Brian Kayanja, and Charles Lwanga among others.

Kankonde, 23, becomes the fifth player to join KCCA FC in this transfer window after Moses Waiswa, and teenagers Faisal Wabyoona, Saidi Mayanja, and Allan Enyou respectively.
