Makwatta scores debut goal in Zambian league

Kenya international John Mark Makwatta took to social media to express his delight after opening his account in the Zambia league on Saturday.

The former Ulinzi Stars marksman scored both goals, with one coming from the penalty spot, as his Buildcon FC side easily saw off bottom of the table Real Nakonde.

“Glory back to God for the win and the 2 goals, the deadlock has been broken,” Makwatta wrote on his official Facebook page.


Makwatta joined Buildcon soon after top scoring in the 2016 Kenyan Premier League season with 16 goals.

The 23-year-old explained at the time that he was hoping to emulate Jesse Were’s scoring exploits in the Zambia league

Until he found the net this weekend, the quick-footed forward has, however, found the going tough down South, taking part in nine games without scoring goal.

Buildcon is also home to another Kenya international Clifton Mihesso.
