“The players are officially signed with AmaZulu FC, and we’re pleased to have them. They are quality players who bring much needed quality in their respective positions,” AmaZulu general manager Lunga Sokhela told the club’s website.

The duo played for the NFD champions Thanda Royal Zulu last season. Amabhubesi’s status has since been bought by AmaZulu.

AmaZulu have also announced the signing of Sadat Ouro-Akoriko, Sduduzo Dlamini, Jabulani Ncobeni, Siyabonga Mbatha and Siyethemba Mnguni during the current transfer period.
