Gutu, Mwale join Dynamos


Former Zimbabwe youth soccer international, Archieford Gutu and forgotten striker Clive Mwale have joined Harare giants Dynamos.

Dynamos team manager Nyika Chifamba confirmed the two signed two-year contracts with an option to renew.

“Achieford is a young player and he has a lot that he can give to Dynamos,” said Chifamba.

“He was a free agent, he showed willingness to play for us and the technical team is happy to have him in the team.”

Chifamba said his team is now waiting for a Reverse International Clearance (RIC) certificate from the South Africa Football Association (Safa) which he said they were certain to receive Friday.

Gutu was turning out for Ajax Cape Town.
Chifamba said they signed Mwale to beef up their strike force which had been struggling since the departure of Cuthbert Malajila who now plies his trade in Tunisia.

“As for Mwale, he indicated that he wanted to come back and we saw it wise to sign him to strengthen our striking force. We have already written to the Premier Soccer League and we are expecting their response anytime,” said Chifamba.

When NewsDay visited Rufaro Stadium to watch the team preparing for the epic battle in Bulawayo against Highlanders, both Mwale and Gutu were training with the team with Chifamba hinting that the two can be thrown into the fray at Barbourfields on Sunday if they can get the clearance letters in time.

“They are Dynamos players now and if we can get their papers on time, they will play,” said Chifamba.

Gutu (17) became club less after Ajax Cape Town terminated his contract because he is still a minor.

The Zambian international Mwale, returns to the club which he left in 2007.

The diminutive striker, after dumping Dembare joined city rivals Caps United in 2008 before packing his bags for his home country where he joined City of Lusaka FC.

Meanwhile, two other former Dynamos sons, Leo Kurauzvione and Trymore Mtisi are also on the verge of rejoining the club.

Chifamba said that the two have been training with Dynamos for almost three weeks now but are still sorting their papers.
