According to the Zambia media, Rupia has been sought as replacement to Dynamos top striker Alex Ngonga who is on the verge of completing a move to South African club Baroka FC.

Fifth-placed Dynamos beat Kenya’s AFC Leopards, Tanzania’s Yanga and Rwanda’s Rayon Sport to Rupia’s signature.

Should Rupia complete this move, he will join several Kenyan stars who are currently plying their trade in Zambia.

They include Kenya internationals Jesse Were, David Owino, Anthony Akumu, Musa Mohammed, Clifton Miheso and John Mark Makwatta.
