Mubaiwa twins frustrated

Former young Warriors players Patrick and Peter Mubaiwa are worried that the delay of their permanent residence papers could jeopardise their dream of playing in the ABSA Premiership.

After years of trying without luck, the former Zimbabwe Under-23 stars finally got their chance to graduate from the National First Division early this season – when they each signed a two-year contract with newly-promoted Chippa United.

Although they got their dream contracts, the twins are still training with their former club, Witbank Spurs in the National First Division, pending the issuance of their papers by the Department of Home Affairs.

Patrick told The Zimbabwean early this week that they were in the dark on what had delayed their papers.

“At the moment we don’t have any clue about when we will finally receive our permits. When we call home affairs they just say our documents will be ready soon and to tell the truth, this really hurts. We want to start playing football, not sit and watch from the stands.”

The former Harare United players spent many seasons playing for the unfashionable lower division side Spurs, but have nonetheless rejoiced in having been given a chance to break into the PSL, which has always been their biggest dream destination.
