Awkward! Kaizer Chiefs buy BACK former player – for R12 million!

Zitha Kwinika, previously known as Zitha Macheke, is reported to be on his way to back to Naturena from Stellenbosch FC.

According to iDiski Times, both Kaizer Chiefs and Stellenbosch FC have agreed terms for Kwinika to return to his former club for an undisclosed transfer fee.

While the transfer fee remains officially undisclosed, according to Transfermarkt, Kwinika is valued at R12 million.

This after the 28-year-old impressed for Stellenbosch over the past two seasons. The truth is Kwinika has been in top form since leaving Amakhosi.

Kwinika spent a number of years in Kaizer Chiefs’ development structures before being promoted to the first team in 2014.

However, he spent the vast majority of his time at Naturena playing for their DStv Diski Challenge, then MultiChoice Diski Challenge, before being loaned out to Chippa United.

Kwinika would then make his move to Chippa United permanent in August 2015 as the Glamour Boys deemed him surplus to requirements.

The lanky centre-back also featured for Thanda Royal Zulu FC and Bidvest Wits before settling in at Stellenbosch at the start of the 2020/21 season.

Now, having featured 53 times for Stellenbosch, Kwinika appears to have done enough to secure a return to Amakhosi.

Reports suggest the player was also keen on the move.
