Gamal, 26, has joined the Students on a one-year loan deal from continental giants Al-Ahly.
Wits CEO Jose Ferreira last week confirmed to KickOff.com the champions were thrashing out the terms of the move.
The Pharaohs international will provide competition to the likes of James Keene, Gabadinho Mhango and Eleazar Rodgers at Milpark, while he could offset the potential departure of Phakamani Mahlambi to Portugal. The teenage forward is currently on trial at Bongani Zungu's team Vitoria Guimaraes.
Gamal has netted 29 goals in over 100 appearances for Ahly, having come through the Cairo-based club's development ranks.
