Dennis Chembezi weighs options


Malawi National Football Team defender Dennis Chembezi is yet to decide on his next move after parting ways with South Africa Glad Championship side Polokwane City in June.

Chembezi said he had several offers on his table and was weighing his options.

“I have several offers, both local and international. I hope to conclude discussions with one of the teams next month,’’ the former Mighty Mukuru Wanderers defender said.


Chembezi has been linked with some teams in Qatar and Saudi Arabia since ending his two-and a-half year spell with Polokwane.

The versatile defender also disclosed that domestic giants Wanderers, Nyasa Big Bullets and Silver Strikers approached him.

“If the move to a foreign team does not materialise, I will consider playing for a local club,” he said.


As a free agent, Chembezi can join a team of his choice outside the Fifa transfer window.

Another Flames star Robin Ngalande joined Wanderers last week after leaving Saint George of Ethiopia.

Also back home from abroad is striker Richard Mbulu, who has returned to Mafco from relegated South Africa DStv Premiership side Baroka FC.

Chembezi was an integral member of the Flames squad that reached the round-of-16 of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Cameroon early this year.

In the absence of captain Limbikani Mzava, Chembezi formed a strong partnership with Lawrence Chaziya to keep Flames’ opponents at bay.

However, he missed the 2-1 win over Ethiopia and 1-0 loss to Guinea in the 2023 Afcon qualifiers in June this year due to injury.

Mzava is also a free agent after he was released at AmaZulu before the start of the season.

In a recent interview, Mzava said he was not in a hurry for his next move.

’’I am still resting and I will communicate once I sign for another club,’’ Mzava said.

Currently, Gabadinho Mhango is the only Malawian player in the DStv Premiership.

In the second-tier, Polokwane have two Malawian players in striker Khuda Muyaba and midfielder Mike Mkwate.

However, Mkwate is finding the going tough in the Rainbow Nation as he is failing to break into the starting eleven.
