Amajita’s chances of winning the Caf Under-20 African Cup of Nations will get a further boost with Bidvest Wits star, Phakamani Mahlambi joining the team on Tuesday.

Mahlambi was initially left behind and didn’t take part as Amajita beat Cameroon 3-1 in their opening group B match on Monday evening.

But it seems Wits have had a change of heart and let the youngster join the national Under-20 side in Zambia.

Mahlambi, who is in devastating form since returning from a career threatening injury, posted a photo of himself in Amajita gear and said he was at the OR Tambo International Airport and headed to Zambia on national duty.
