The development was confirmed to Kawowo Sports by his Ugandan based representative, Simon Musoke.

He (Benjamin Ochan) has signed at Kabwe Warriors Football Club for a three-year tenure.

The paper work of securing his work permit as well as the International Transfer Certificate from FUFA and his parent club (KCCA) is now underway.

Ochan was part of the squad for Uganda Cranes that played at the recently concluded CHAN tournament held in Morocco.

Initially, Ochan was destined to move to Nkana Red Devils but the deal fell through at the 11th hour.

His agent cites technicalities for the foiled move.

What happened to Ochan happens world over. The move had been confirmed but the club (Nkana) changed its status.

We are praying he (Ochan) settles at Kabwe Warriors because he remains  strong hearted player who is gifted.

Kabwe Warriors is a Zambian football club based in Kabwe that plays in the top flight league.

In the 2013/14 season, Kabwe Warriors was relegated to Division 1 before they were promoted again.

The Zambia Railways sponsored club host their games at Godfrey ‘Ucar’ Chitalu 107 Stadium in Kabwe.

Kabwe Warriors has won the Zambia Premier League in 1968, 1970, 1971, 1972 and lately 1987.

They have triumphed 5 times as well in the Zambian cup; 1967, 1969, 1972, 1984 and 1987; as well as Zambia Challenge Cup (1970, 1972, 1989, 1991, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007).
