Photos: Chiefs Signs Burundi Striker | See The General Sentiment Expressed By Fans On The Signing

Disk_News provides with updates on the Glamour Boys signing and what their fans are saying about the signing.

After appearing to have encountered a roadblock in the previous few weeks, the 24-year-old is now officially an Amakhosi player.

Forward Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana has signed with Kaizer Chiefs, the team has announced.

The Burundian signed a two-year contract that includes a one-year option to extend it.

The lanky forward, who was signed as a free agent after leaving Kazakh club FC Kaysar Kyzylorda, has been without a club since January.

In the previous three years, Bimenyimana had played for three different teams: Rayon Sports in Rwanda, FK Rigas in Latvia, and FK Atlantas in Lithuania.

Before moving to Kazakhstan, he spent a brief period on loan at FK Pohronie in Slovakia.

Bimenyimana joined the Chiefs' preseason camp in July, but amid rumours that he was considering relocating to Canada, he ceased working out with Amakhosi.

According to other sources, he was in route to Rayon Sports, his previous club.

But on Thursday, Chiefs presented the striker who Zwane had first noticed while he was representing Burundi against Namibia in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at FNB Stadium.

In the 1-1 tie, he later scored Burundi's equaliser before getting sent off for taking off his shirt in celebration.

Following Ashley du Preez, Zwane signs the 24-year-old as Chiefs' second striker for the 2022–23 campaign.

Zwane had previously stated that a center-forward was needed.

Now everyone is watching Bimenyimana to see if he can assist Chiefs in improving their attacking flaws.

They failed to score in last weekend's 4-0 thrashing by Mamelodi Sundowns as well as the 1-0 Premier Soccer League loss to Royal AM.

Amakhosi's 3-0 victory over Maritzburg United featured the team's sole goal this year.

Will Bimenyimana prove to be the answer to the attacking weaknesses of Kaizer Chiefs?
