Son to former national team and Wits midfielder with a similar name, the teenage star was been named the Johannesburg-based side’s finest young player for 2013 after a stellar season in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Under-17 league.

The 17-year-old scored 12 goals and provided a number of assists, as his team eventually finished a credible third. “My ambitions for this season are to make it into the first team by the end of this year, and to win the Player of the Year again,” the ambitions forward told The Zimbabwean ahead of the resumption of the new PSL Under-17 season.

The Wits junior ranks are among the most organised in the country, proving a conveyor belt of talent to the senior side every season, which enhances the prospects of Kapowezha turning out for the Premiership outfit.

Meanwhile, the junior league starts in March and should he still be there, Kapowezha will be eager to replicate the form that also earned him a berth in the team that recently travelled to Denmark. The teenage star is following in the footsteps of his father, who had a lengthy career that took off at Caps United in the Zimbabwe Premiership and later saw him play for South African and Polish sides.
