He joins Gadaffi FC as they sit eighth in the UPL log having made 10 first-team appearances before suffering a long term injury. 

Commenting on his move, Basangwa said: “It’s a good chance to revive myself. I’ve worked hard over the last few weeks since coming back from injury and am determined to develop further through this opportunity.”

We wish Richard Basangwa all the best at Gadaffi FC and look forward to monitoring just continued development.
