Moses ‘Bambo’ Chunga has been appointed as Chapungu Football Club’s head coach succeeding the unheralded Thomas Chinyan’ana, the Air Force of Zimbabwe side posted on their twitter account over the weekend.

“Will Bambo, like biblical Moses did with the Israelites, guide us to the promised land?,” Chapungu tweeted .

Chapungu went on and posted a picture of Chunga with the club officals in Gweru recently.

The airmen are awaiting confirmation of whether they will play in the Premiership or Division One this year.

Should Herentals fail in their bid to overturn the decision by the PSL disciplinary committee to condemn them to Division One over match-fixing charges, the Gweru side will be back in the top-flight league.

The 54-year-old started his coaching career at Dynamos in 2002. He won his first managerial honours with Gunners FC, who became Premier Soccer League (PSL) Champions in 2009. He subsequently left the Gunners before the start of the following season and joined fellow Harare-side Shooting Stars.

Chunga’s penchant for young talent is well documented, for here is a man who believes the boy and not the man can do the job for him. 
His famed Kidznet Project at Dynamos in the early 2000s ushered onto the scene baby-faced assassins in the form of Samson Choruwa, Norman Maroto and Eddie Mashiri who rocked the nation despite failing to claim the ultimate title.

Bambo has also been involved with the Warriors, the Mighty Warriors, Under-20 and Under-17 national teams.
