The Cameroonian netminder spent more than a decade at Siwelele until he left under controversial circumstances at the end of the 2018/19 Premier Soccer League (PSL) season.
“Yes, he has signed with Chippa United. It’s a three-year deal,” said the source to Goal.
However, Tignyemb will have to fight harder and topple the likes of Mbongeni Mzimela who was the Chilli Boys' number one last season.
Having joined Siwelele in 2008, Tignyemb featured in 29 PSL matches last season but helped the club to qualify for the MTN8 Cup.
