Gomba teams up with compatriots Chris Semekwari and Darryl Nyandoro who helped Don Bosco gain promotion last year while on loan from four-time African champions TP Mazembe.
The former Dynamos and Hwange player began training with Don Bosco last week readying for next month’s CAF Confederations Cup preliminary round date against South African side SuperSport United.
The Lubumbashi outfit qualified for the continental competition after lifting DRC’s top knockout tournament Coupe du Congo while they were still in the first division last season.
The club approached Gomba two weeks ago following the expiry of his contract with Lupopo.
“I am happy to join Chris and Darryl at Don Bosco. The other good thing is that we are playing in the Confederations Cup,” said Gomba.
The Congolese side whose president is Moise Katumbi’s youthful son Champion appears an ambitious outfit with a concerted hunt for foreign players as they also prepare for a challenge in this year’s DRC Linafoot which kicks off in March.
Coached by former CAPS United coach and Zambian national Fordson Kabole, Don Bosco have been linked with the Ghanaian duo of goalkeeper Ernest Sowah and striker Ibrahim Issaka from Berekum Chelsea, as well as Joseph Sitali from Zambia.
While Gomba is happy to have singed for Don Bosco, Samakweri is eager for an exit move from the club.
“I might go back to TP Mazembe,” said Semakweri.
