The Siya crew has looked into the highly-rated player, learning that Mulenga is a 28-year-old (born on 17 January 1990) Zambian forward, who can also play as a winger.

He has been playing for Zambian giants, Zanaco FC and has been with the team since January 2016.

Before joining Zanaco two years ago, Mulenga played for Nkana FC, where he was part of the squad for two years from 2014 to 2016.

Earlier in his career, Mulenga spent some time on the books of Nkwazi FC, the same club that Pirates signed Justin Shonga from. 

In December last year, Mulenga was voted the 2017 Footballer of the Year in Zambia for his impressive performances for Zanaco.

Mulenga beat the league’s top scorer in Zambia, Chris Mungalu, as well as teammate Toaster Nsabata to the top award.

The player’s impressive performances and goals helped Zanaco qualify for the CAF Champions League by securing a spot as runners-up in the Zambian Super League.

Mulenga is a senior national team player in Zambia, having made his international debut in a friendly match against Zimbabwe in March 2017.

He is part of the Zambian national team that played in the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) that is currently underway in Morocco.
