Amazulu Football Club have bid farewell to midfielder Mswati Mavuso.

The 22-year-old joined the club last year at the helm of French coach Romain Folz.

The club had already initiated a mid-season clear-out by saying goodbye to Tercious Malepe, Sibusiso Mabiliso, Siphesihle Maduna, Mxolisi Kunene, and Mfanafuthi Mkhize.

Mavuso's representative, Minenhle Mkhize, confirmed that the player had left AmaZulu. Additionally, he disclosed that Mavuso would be travelling to Europe for an assessment by a Swedish club.

“Yes, it is true that Mavuso is no longer part of AmaZulu. He has parted ways with the club. We parted company on a mutual agreement," said Mkhize, as quoted on Far Post.

Mkhize confirmed they were busy sorting Mavuso’s Visa issue, and that he would jet off to Sweden, where a club was waiting to evaluate him. He had no doubts that everything would turn out perfectly as the club prepared for the new season.

The team will hit the field again on Saturday, February 17, as they take on Cape Town City FC in the second round of the DStv Premiership.

In other transfer news, AmaZulu has secured Augustine Mulenga on a free transfer and loaned Sfiso Ngobeni from Premier Soccer League leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Mulenga, the Zambian forward, returns for a second stint with the club, having previously played from 2020 to 2022. His experience at Chippa United in the first half of the season, featuring in 16 games and providing two assists, is expected to bolster Pablo Franco Martin's attacking options significantly.

Meanwhile, Ngobeni, who has only made two league appearances this season, will seek more game time in the remaining matches.

AmaZulu have also been evaluating Ntsako Makhubela, one of the players released by Moroka Swallows due to a players' strike.

In other developments, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, the Kaizer Chiefs legend known as 'Yeye', officially bid farewell to the club. In a heartfelt letter, Letsholonyane expressed gratitude for his time with the club, which began last season when he was appointed as a mentor for the under-17 side as part of the club's Vision 2032 initiative.

The retired footballer-turned-coach, who recently acquired a CAF A coaching Licence in Botswana last year, got his CAF Licence in South Africa in 2021 and pursued a CAF C Licence in Zambia in 2022.

Zimbabwe beckons for former AmaZulu FC midfielder

Sports Brief reported that Butholezwe Ncube was moving to Zimbabwe to join a first-division team to revive his career after being released by AmaZulu FC.

The 31-year-old midfielder has opted to restart his career under the guidance of coach Lizwe Sweswe.

Ncube is set to join Sheasham FC, a team competing in the ZIFA Central Region Soccer League.
