Kelvin Kaindu bounces back as new Bosso coach

By Tapiwa Svondo

Highlanders Football Club have announced the return of Kelvin Kaindu as head coach.

The decision follows the departure of Portuguese coach Baltemar Brito and his assistant Antonio Torres after the expiry of their contracts this December.

Kaindu, a familiar figure within the Bosso faithful, brings a wealth of experience both as a player and coach.

Having donned the Highlanders jersey in 1997, Kaindu has a deep connection with the Bulawayo giants.

Famed for his signature phrase, ‘It shall be well’, Kaindu once served as the Bosso dugout boss from 2012 to 2014, at one point finishing the league race tied on points with rivals Dynamos who eventually clinched the title on a superior goal difference.

In a statement Tuesday, the management at Highlanders expressed delight in welcoming the Zambian mentor back into the Bosso family.

“Highlanders Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Kelvin Kaindu as the new head coach for the club’s first team,” said the club.

“Kaindu is not new to the club, having previously played for Highlanders in 1997 before he was entrusted with the Bosso dugout between 2012 and 2014.

“The entire management at the club would like to extend a warm welcome to Kaindu and wish him all the best as he opens yet another chapter with Highlanders Football Club.”

The return of Kaindu would bring back hope for a club which boasts the most passionate support in the premiership after what started as a promising 2023 season under Brito turned disastrous for the team that ended the season positioned number five.
