Nkatha moves to Kicks on loan


Nkatha, who signed a three-year deal with Mike Mokoena’s Ea Lla Koto in January has moved to accommodate two Ghanaian players, Jonathan Mensah and David Telfar.

Mensah and Telfar have been signed by their countryman David Duncan, who has taken over the coaching reigns at the club.

Though Nkatha has been sent on loan, he had fared well in the two games that he started last season, scoring twice since his arrival from CAPS United in Zimbabwe in February.

“I have been sent on loan to Carara for six months. I am fine with the decision because it was made by the club. All I want to do is continue playing my football,” Nkatha tells KickOff.

Carara Kicks are owned by Mokoena’s son, Motebang,

With the signing on of the two Ghana players, Zambian keeper Kennedy Mweene, Nigerian midfielder Prince Olomu and Zimbabwe defender James Matola make up Stars’ five foreign player quota.

Nkatha is due to leave for Zimbabwe today (Tuesday) where he will join the Warriors squad who are preparing for the Cosafa Senior Challenge that takes place in Mpumalanga later this month.

After the regional tournament Nkatha will join Kicks for pre-season training ahead of the start of the First Division season in September.
