Eric Tinkler's men secured a spot in the CAF Confederation Cup final, having seen off the Egyptian side in the second leg of their semi-final tie on Sunday night.
Mahamutsa has also heaped praise on his teammates for showing character, after going 2-0 down in the second half.
“Tonight was all about pride!,” Mahamutsa told the club's official website.
“It wasn’t an easy match by any means. They (Al Ahly) made it very difficult for us to get comfortable however we showed enough character in the second half and bounced back.
“It is hard to explain the process we went through but its as if we all were in tune with what we (as players) had to do. After all this match was more than just a match for us as players or the club; it was for the millions of supporters back home who have supported us through and through…it was also about the pride of the nation.
"As the only Southern African team in the competition, we knew we had the responsibility to represent our country the way it should be represented.”
Mahamutsa added that the Buccaneers will now shift their focus to their Telkom Knockout tie with the University of Pretoria.
“This is a huge achievement but the job is not complete as yet. We will celebrate tonight’s victory but tomorrow is back to work. First we have to focus on the Telkom Knockout Cup clash against University of Pretoria and then the final," he added.
