The keeper announced on social media that he is now a Baroka FC player, following a season with South African first division club Maccabi FC.
“I want to thank my family, friends and fans for the support. Thank you all for your prayers. Let's continue and I am grateful for the opportunity to play for a team of Baroka FC's calibre,” Kazapua said.
The Namibian goalkeeper was one of the stars of team at Afcon 2019.
He made a series of crucial saves that kept his side in the running, despite them bowing out of the competition at the group stage.
It was the 30-year-old's first Afcon, but his ability to command the penalty area was something that many admired at the tournament.
The Baroka FC goalkeeper made his national team debut on 4 January 2014 in a friendly against Ghana.
In 2018 Kazapua made the first-11 for the group stages of the African Nations Championship (Chan). He made some great saves at the tournament in Morocco.
Kazapua joins national teammate Ananias Gebhardt at Baroka FC.
He becomes the second Namibian player in just a few days to make a move, after Tiberius Lombard signed for Sensational Zanaco FC in the Zambian premier league.
It is also expected that other Namibian players will be on their way to new clubs after Afcon 2019.
Speculation is rife that several clubs in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) are also after the signature of former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper and Bafana international Virgil Vries.
