Zimbabwe Warriors midfielder, Kudakwashe Mahachi is reportedly on the verge of signing for South Africa DStv Premiership side Maritzburg United as he seeks a return to playing football, according to The Sunday News.
Mahachi was in May 2022 suspended by SuperSport United following allegations that he had poured hot water on his 10-year-old son with the intention to kill him.
The former Highlanders FC midfielder has since been cleared of the charges by a local court.
SuperSport chose not to renew the midfielder’s contract when it expired on 30 June.
Mahachi is eager for a return to action.
Maritzburg United are bottom of the log with 11 points, picked up from two wins and five draws while they have lost seven matches.
Should he seal a deal with the KwaZulu-Natal-based side, it will be Mahachi’s fifth club across the Limpopo River since he left Zimbabwe in 2014 to join Mamelodi Sundowns. After Sundowns, the Highlanders junior product also played for Golden Arrows, Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United.
Locally, Mahachi played for Bantu Rovers, and Chicken Inn before he had a brief stint with Highlanders prior to his move to Sundowns.
The 29-year-old Mahachi was one of the scorers for the Warriors together with retired former captain Walter Musona at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon a year ago when Zimbabwe defeated Guinea 2-1 in their last match of the tournament.
