Sera, who hit the ground running after making his move to South Africa in 2018 has been struggling for game time at AM, making only three appearances for the John Maduka-coached side this season.
The 26-year-old Likuena’s all-time leading goal-scorer in the COSAFA Cup was part of the Bloemfontein Celtic players, who relocated to Kwazulu-Natal after Phunya Sele Sele were sold to Royal AM before the start of the current SA’s 2021/22 football season.
“Yes, Sera has signed with Chippa United and will soon be unveiled by his new club. It’s a permanent move to the Chilli Boys and not a loan deal.
“Sera’s contract with AM was running out and was set to be a free agent by the end of the season and they did not want to lose him for free as they knew Chippa had made it clear they are interested in the services of the striker.

“So, in the end, the two teams agreed to a deal and personal terms have already begun between Sera and the management of the Chilli Boys,” the source said.
Since making the move to South Africa, Sera made 45 appearances and scored nine goals in all competitions with majority of them coming during his time at Celtic.
He is expected to don the colours of Chippa United when the DSTV Premiership resumes after the Africa Cup of Nations, which gets underway in Cameroon on Sunday.
