Other new faces at Bulawayo City are midfielders Lucky Nyathi and Tatenda Tavengwa, formerly with relegated Tsholotsho, as well as ex-Hwange player Justin Kaunda.
Strikers Mgcini Sibanda from How Mine, and Nhlanhla Ndlovu, who was at Highlanders, and former Bantu Rovers goalkeeper, Wellington Muuya have also joined the Bulawayo local authority side.
The new signings were announced yesterday at the club offices by the team’s public relations officer, Thandiwe Moyo.
“These are the players that we have signed so far and negotiations are in progress with other players whose names we cannot reveal at the moment. The coaches are still assembling a squad for the 2018 season and by the end of the week, we will probably know which other new players are coming on board and who the coaches will be dropping,” she said.
Sources have revealed that Bulawayo City are targeting goalkeeper Takudzwa Ndoro, twin brother of Warriors striker, Tendai, who has been in Botswana and South Africa.
The future of goalkeepers Ndodana Sibanda and Liberty Chirava are uncertain at Bulawayo City.
