CAPS United qualified to represent Zimbabwe in the prestigious
Confederation Cup by virtue of winning the country’s premier knockout
football tournament of the lucrative CBZ FA Cup late last year.
Best known as Manchester Road Boys or Makepekepe in football circles,
CAPS are expected to trail the footsteps of Dynamos who last year
reached the semi-final of the Confederation of African Football Club
Championship following a 5-0 defeat (aggregate) by Cameroon’s Cotton
Under Lloyd Chitembwe, CAPS are tipped to sail through the little known
Uganda side whose country has no football history except in the eastern
African regional grouping.
In this African tour of Uganda, CAPS United will bolster the club
through experienced players Clive Mwale, Limited Chikafa, acrobatic
goalkeeper Tsungai Mudzamiri, tough tackling defender David Kutyauripo,
Oscar Machapa and many others, among them Edmore Sibanda respectively.
However, CAPS United will be without Method Mwanjali who is out of the
country on trials, but the overlapping defender is expected into the
folds in the second leg to be played in Harare in a fortnight night.
