Botswana beefs up team

Zim stars land deals ahead of new season
BOTSWANA'S Mascom Premier League outfit, Tafic Football Club, has signed two Zimbabwean players - Malvern Nyakabangwe and Sizalobuhle Dube - in a bid to beef up their squad ahead of the start of the new season next m

As teams jostle to strengthen their squads, a number of local players have landed deals in Botswana.
The pair joins Zimbabwean coach Godfrey Tamirepi, who heads the technical department at the club.
Nyakabangwe, formerly with Lancashire Steel, CAPS United and Masvingo United, joined the Botswana club from Southern Region Division One side, Ziscosteel.
Nyakabangwe’s new team-mate, Dube, who plays as a left winger, moved from Njube Sundowns. The lively winger once played for former Premiership club Railstars.
A Tafic official, Changana Rapula, confirmed the development to CAJ News on Friday.
“We signed him (Malvern Nyakabangwe) and Siza Dube from Njube Sundowns.
Everything went well and I’m happy we got what we needed in time. I’m afraid that I cannot get into detail about their contracts. For now I cannot disclose anything, maybe after some time because I have been away and I have not had a chance to look at their contracts,” he said.
“We are very happy to have the two in our youthful side as they will certainly add depth,” he added.
The two are not the only local players who have moved to Botswana lately in search of greener pastures.
According to reports from Botswana, Railstars marksman Master Masitara has joined the Madinda Ndlovu-coached Nico United.
His former team-mate at Railstars, Master Masiku, is also seeking a move to the same club. He recently quit Swaziland club Mbabane Highlanders.
Unsettled former Highlanders defender Bekithemba ‘Malala’ Nkiwane has found new home at Mogoditshane Fighters, where he joins his former team-mate Patrick Mpofu.
The club regained topflight status last season after spending a year in the lower division.
