Lazarus Kaimbi (born 12 August 1988) is a Namibian footballer who plays for Kelantan as a striker.

Club career[edit]

Kaimbi joined South African club Jomo Cosmos from Ramblers F.C. of Namibia in November 2006.

On November 9, he scored the only goal in the 2014 Thai FA Cup final against Chonburi, to help Bangkok Glass to win their first ever Thai FA Cup trophy. This was considered a huge upset considering that Chonburi had just missed out on the League title and Bangkok Glass came into the match with the statistically worst defense in Thailand's top division.[1]

In June 2018, Kaimbi signed with Malaysia Super League team Kelantan, and made his debut on 5 June in a league match against Kedah.[2]

International career[edit]

As a member of the Namibia national football team, Kaimbi competed with the team at the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations. He scored twice in Namibia's win over Djibouti in the first round of African qualification for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in November 2011.[3]
