Togara was one of the 11 players offloaded by FC Platinum at the start of the season despite being named their best player.
Also shown the door was national team goalkeeper Tafadzwa Dube, now at Caps United.
Dube kept a clean sheet yesterday as the Warriors thumped Mauritius 3-0 in the first leg of the first round of the African Nations Championships (Chan) in Port Louis.
The Lowveld side, who have already made their intention to survive relegation in their debut season this year clear, also inked one-year deals with former Motor Action striker Misheck Mburayi and ex-Bulawayo Chiefs midfielder Walter Mukanda.
Triangle head coach Gishon Ntini confirmed the development to NewsDay Sport yesterday.
“We have managed to sign the players on one-year contracts and I believe we have beefed all the departments and all the players are exceptionally talented. The move is also set to add competition in the team,” he said.
“Togara is a tried and tested defender who has seen it all. At this time of the season this is the kind of experience you need in your camp. Recruitments are done early into a new season not mid season and our major thrust has not changed’ we are just aiming to avoid relegation,” he said.
The Premiership debutants are currently lying on 10th position with 22 points from 18 matches.
