Mpala finds new home


Former Highlanders striker Nqobile Mpala has finally found a home in South Africa.
The burly former rugby international has joined National First Division side University of Pretoria, popularly known as “Tuks” according to the club.
Mpala left Highlanders at the beginning of the season to join Ralph Matema at Witbank Spurs but the deal fell through. Mpala joined the “Tuks” alongside Swaziland winger Mzwandile Ndzimande from Mhlambanyatsi Rovers.
“Tuks” lost inspirational Zimbabwean skipper Obert Moyo to Bidvest two months ago but have enticed Mpala and Joseph Mthombeni into extending their stay for another year and are also considering bringing in Edward Malinga.
They have snapped up former Orlando Pirates winger Tebogo Mashaba while they look to conclude the signing of midfielder Christopher Netshidzivhe.
Meanwhile, Platinum Stars’ decision on whether or not to sign Zimbabwean striker Terrence Mandaza will be made by their new coach. Mandaza, who was hailed as the hottest property in Botswana last season after scoring 42 goals in all competitions, is currently training with Stars in the hope of securing a contract with the North West- based side this coming season.
Dinaledi chief executive officer Jason Raine said his club is still reviewing a few applicants for the coaching position but promised to make an announcement soon regarding changes in their technical team.
“The issue of whether to sign Mandaza or not will rest with the new coach. We are reviewing applicants regarding the coaching post and we want to make sure we find the right person before we make an announcement.”
