Mukandi off to SA

HARARE – Dynamos goalkeeper and Warriors fringe player Artwell Mukandi is expected to undergo trials at newly-promoted South African Premiership side Mpumalanga Black Aces.

Mukandi, who arrived at Dynamos at the start of the year amid great expectations after an impressive season with Monomotapa last year, has been frozen out in recent months due to a mysterious injury which saw his legs swell.

This has seen Mukandi relinquish the first team jersey to George Chigova and has seen little action at DeMbare.

The intended move to Mpumalanga might see him revive his career that showed much promise last year, resulting in him being called to the Warriors by outgoing national team coach Klaus-Dieter Pagels for the World Cup qualifiers.

Dynamos secretary Webster Chikengezha confirmed that Mukandi is on the Absa Premiership’s radar and DeMbare had released him to go for trials.

“We had a letter from Mpumalanga Black Aces wanting to have a look at Artwell and we have since released him to go,” Chikengeza told the Daily News.

“He is supposed to leave either today (Monday) or tomorrow (Tuesday).”

The arrival of former Dynamos first choice Zondai Nyaungwa, who is returning after a stint in Swaziland, poses another threat to Mukandi’s hopes of wrestling the number one slot.

A number of Dynamos players have been linked with moves to South Africa.

Defensive pillar Partson Jaure has been linked with a move to Pretoria University while left-back Ocean Mushure and anchorman Devon Chafa have also been rumoured to be on the radar of some South African clubs.

Chikengezha could not disclose the length of the trial stint while the player was not reachable.

Murume anonzi Pasuwa is a politician. He frustrates some players kana waenda hanzi handina team. Look at the players dzaakaendesa nedzaakatora. Kuramba Arufandika uchitora Tawarwisa, look at Munya Diya. Iwe Pasuwa be professional and relate well with players.
