The former Hwange and Caps United star, recently signed for topflight side Cercle Sportif Don Bosco de Lubumbashi (CS Don Bosco F.C), said to be sister club to one of Africa’s continental giants, TP Mazembe.

Moyo moved to the DRC following his frustration with lack of game time at South African Premiership side, Platinum Stars. “I am very pleased to be part of Don Bosco and this is feels good after the sad chapter I went through in SA,” he said.

“I came to the DRC last month and I have worked hard to break into the starting line-up. It’s always good to meet new people and it’s a good life experience. Football here is being run professionally and I am getting every support I need from both club management and my teammates alike. What remains now is form me deliver and help the club reach the greater height they deserve.”

Early this week, Moyo’s club lay second on the eight-team log with 19 points from 10 games. With a game in hand, they were eight points behind their sister club. Other Zimbabwean players plying their trade at CS Don Bosco include Christopher Semakweri, Darryl Nyandoro and Carrington Gomba.

Moyo endured a frustrating time in South Africa, where he was limited to life on the terraces at Platinum Stars and had last played a competitive game in August last year, when his then team beat Moroka Swallows 3-1 in their first league game of last season.

The former Hwange and Caps United defence stalwart has previously also starred for University of Pretoria, whom he captained to a Nedbank Cup final appearance when they were still in the First Division 2009. They narrowly lost that game 1-0 to Moroka Swallows.
