Makuvire, a former general manager of the team, replaces former CEO Maxwell Mironga who has stepped down, club president Twine Phiri confirmed yesterday.
Caps United, who had a forgettable campaign in the past season in which they finished a disappointing tenth in the league, are hoping for an improved performance in the forthcoming term.
Caps United are on the verge of signing former Gunners midfielder Moses Muchenje who is already training with the 2005 champions.
Muchenje played in a practice match against Black Rhinos at the weekend and appears to have impressed coach Mkhuphali Masuku, who is likely to throw him into the fray when Caps lock horns with Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa in an international friendly match on Friday.
“We have some new players we are trying, who include Moses Muchenje, but we have not made a decision on them yet. We could field them in the friendly against Mamelodi Sundowns, but we are still to finalise our squad for the coming season. We will only announce our squad on February 20,” Masuku said.
Masuku is the acting head coach of the Green Machine after Taurai Mangwiro was banned from football activities by Zifa for alleged involvement in the match-fixing scandal dubbed Asiagate.
Caps have also signed another former Gunners midfielder Wellington Kamudyariwo.
Kamudyariwo was part of Moses Chunga’s Gunners side that failed to survive relegation on the last day of the league programme last year.
