"This is a very exciting challenge for me. Wazito FC is a very ambitious side and I am happy to be part of this team." Babu said.

Wazito parted ways with Brit Stewart Hall after the 2019/20 season was halted and have been active even before the transfer window is officially opened as they look to build a formidable side ahead of next season.
