Another player cut ties with AmaZulu FC

AmaZulu FC have parted ways with another player just a few days before the start of the second round of the DStv Premiership.

The league resumes today but Usuthu will return to action on Saturday, 17 February when they visit Cape Town Spurs.

The KZN outfit began their mid-season mass clear-out with the exit of Tercious Malepe. They then waved goodbyes to Sibusiso Mabiliso, Siphesihle Maduna, Mxolisi Kunene and Mfanafuthi Mkhize.

They have now parted company with the midfielder Mswati Mavuso who signed for the club last year. The 22-year-old inked a deal with the Durban-based side during the tenure of Romain Folz.

The player’s representative Minenhle Mkhize confirmed to Bayede News that Mavuso had left the club. Further, he revealed the midfielder would fly to Europe and would be assessed by the Swedish club.


“Yes, it is true that Mavuso is no longer part of AmaZulu. He has parted ways with the club,” said Mkhize as translated from IsiZulu. “We parted company on a mutual agreement.

“Right now, we are busy with Mavuso’s Visa issue. He will jet off to Sweeden, there is a club that wants to assess him and I don’t doubt that everything will go well. This club will soon begin the preparations for the new season.

“When all is in order, we will reveal the club.”

AmaZulu have signed Augustine Mulenga on a free transfer and Sfiso Ngobeni on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Zambian attacker, Mulenga returns for the second spell having been with the club between 2020 and 2022.

He was a regular at Chippa United in the first half of the season, playing 16 games and provided two assists for the club and will be a huge boost for Pablo Franco Martin offensively.

Meanwhile, Ngobeni has only had two league appearances in this campaign and will be looking to get more in the remaining part of the season.

However, he has tough competition in the left-back position with Riaan Hanamub having made the shirt his for quite some time.

AmaZulu have also been assessing Ntsako Makhubela who was part of the players that were dismissed by Moroka Swallows following players’ strike.
