Mwerahari delighted to seal Dynamos move

HARARE - Wing back Obey Mwerahari is delighted to finally sign for Dynamos after his move to the champions was blocked by Monomotapa two seasons ago.

Mwerahari, who joined the serial Zimbabwean title winners on a two-year deal from ZPC Kariba, revealed his lifelong dream to play for the country’s biggest and most successful football club.

The 24-year-old is determined to prove DeMbare’s patience was worthwhile having missed an opportunity to join them at the beginning of the 2013 season. 

Mwerahari was a chief target for the then Dynamos coach Calisto Pasuwa in his bid to strength the team for the Africa Champions League campaign.

Contact was made, a bid was tabled but his club then, Monomotapa, turned down the Glamour Boys.

And last week the wheels were set in motion for the former Zimbabwe youth international to join DeMbare following the expiry of his one-year contract with ZPC Kariba.

“I am delighted. I have been waiting for a long time to be able to get here. It’s what I wanted and it is a privilege and honour to represent the club I supported as a kid,” Mwerahari told Daily News on Sunday.

“This is the most important thing for me in my career. Dynamos are a big team and I could not wait for the opportunity to come and play for them. It has been a long journey to get here but I am happy I have finally made it.

“I cannot wait to get started. What I can say is that I will give everything I have got, and that is guaranteed.”

Mwerahari became the Glamour Boys’ fourth acquisition following the capture of striker Dominic Chungwa and midfielder Kelvin Bulaji from rivals CAPS United alongside Godknows Murwira, who signed from relegated Shabanie Mine.

The Chitungwiza-born star has impressed during his time with ZPC Kariba, but felt the time was right to move on. 

Although his preferred position is right back, Mwerahari is also capable of playing at centre-back and defensive midfield but said he is happy to fill in wherever coach David Mandigora slots him. 

“It was the right time for me to make this big step forward and this is a big move,” he added.

Mwerahari started his football career at the famed Agatha Sheneti Football Academy before joining the now defunct Eagles in 2010.

The former Young Warriors defender was then lured to Monomotapa the following year by Clayton Munemo and also worked under Taurai Mangwiro.

Mwerahari would develop into one of the key players at Monomotapa before the 2008 Zimbabwean champions were relegated at the end of 2013 season.

He then moved to ZPC Kariba at the beginning of last season where he had an impressive season powering the debutants to a second place finish.
