Muduhwa (23), a utility player, has played a pivotal role in the Highlanders central defence, partnering Tendai Ndlovu, with veteran skipper Felix Chindungwe sitting it out on the bench for part of the 2016 season.
Bosso chief executive officer, Ndumiso Gumede confirmed the development yesterday.
“He has always been our player, whom we loaned to Division One side Bulawayo Chiefs last year and he rejoined us mid-season. As his contract neared the end, we sat down and talked to him and he has agreed to stay for another two years up to the end of 2018,” Gumede said.
Muduhwa signed for two years with Highlanders at the beginning of last season from Division Two side Ajax Hotspurs, but the then Highlanders coach, Bongani Mafu felt he lacked the experience. The player was loaned to Division One outfit, Bulawayo Chiefs, where he played half a season before returning to Highlanders for the second half of the season, but he didn’t feature for the first team.
Muduhwa started off as a bench warmer at the beginning of the season, but got his chance after an injury to Honest Moyo and since then he has been a regular. The former Pumula High School student also played for Boot Laces, MK Lions in the juniors ranks before moving to Mpopoma-based Ajax Hotspurs, who seconded him to Bosso.
