AFCON Star Set To Be Chippa’s First Exit

Namibian international goalkeeper Lloyd Kazapua is set to leave Chippa United after two seasons.

Kazapua joined the Chilli Boys from Cape Umoya United (formerly Platinum Stars F.C.) in August 2021 before officially making his debut for the club in February 2022, as they went down 3-2 against Marumo Gallants.

The Windhoek-born shot-stopper represented the Brave Warriors with distinction at the 2023 African Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast, as they created history by advancing past the group stages for the first time in the nation’s history.

This past campaign, Kazapua has had to play second fiddle to Nigerian international Stanley Nwabali, limiting his game-time to just five appearances across all competitions, conceding four goals and keeping a single clean sheet.

iDiski Times understands that Kazapua is on the verge of leaving United at the end of June 2024 with his contract set to expire.

The 35-year-old played over 35 games for United in the past two seasons and kept 15 clean sheets.

The former Baroka FC goalkeeper is currently with the Warriors national team where he is taking part in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. He kept a clean sheet against Tunisia in a 0-0 draw after they held Liberia to a 1-1 share of the spoils.

In other club news, Nwabali could also be on his way out for a fresh and bigger challenge with interest said to be intensifying from a host of local and international clubs including Orlando Pirates. United could be left with Darren Johnson and Lukhanyo July for the upcoming season.
