Key Signings: Augustine Kwem, George Maluleka, Ethan Brooks, Gabadinho Mhango, Ethan Brooks

With Luvuyo Memela and Augustine Mulenga having left the club this close season, AmaZulu’s biggest challenge ahead of the new season will be to find a new outlet for regular goals.

In Augustine Kwem and Gabadinho Mhango, Usuthu have two attackers who are capable of that. It remains to be seen if Brandon Truter can get the most out of the duo.

President Sandile Zungu has challenged Truter to gun for at least one major trophy on offer. While AmaZulu probably won’t challenge for the league, they can potentially go far in the Nedbank Cup and MTN 8 with a bit of luck and strong tactics on the day.

There have also been major changes to the AmaZulu squad. It may take time for the new players to get familiar with each other so it is also important for experienced campaigners such as Veli Mothwa and Makhehlene Makhaula to lead from the front.
