After the signing of Peter Shalulile and Mothobi Mvala with Mamelodi Sundowns, as well as that of Musa Nyatama with Swallows FC, Tapuwa Kapini has become the fourth player from Highlands Park to join a new club after the sale of the Lions of the North.
Kapini is one of the players that were left without a team after the sale of Highlands to TS Galaxy under club boss Tim Sukazi.
The player’s representative, Herve Tra Bi TNB of Sports Agency Management, has confirmed that the 36-year-old goalkeeper has signed one-year deal with Sekhukhune United – the second tier club that bought the status of Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila – after the Limpopo outfit purchased the topflight status of Bidvest Wits.
“TNB Sports Agency Management is delighted to announce the signing of Tapuwa Kapini with Sekhukhune United FC for one year plus one option,” confirmed the representative.
“We had been talking to one club in the PSL (top-flight), but they were taking time and the people from Sekhukhune came and we agreed. What is good about this deal is that the chairman and the management of the club gave him (Kapini) assurance about many things, including a position in the management in the future,” he said.
“The vision of the club is to go to the PSL next season and that’s why they have been looking for experienced players like Kapini. Kapini has two or three seasons in him to continue playing,” the representative concluded.
