Ex-Supersport United Kuda Mahachi Set To Return To South Africa After Horrific Child Abuse Scandal
Former Supersport United player Kuda Mahachi is set for a return to South Africa’s Dstv Premiership after recently being acquitted of attempted murder charges following horrific child abuse allegations.
Supersport United dumped the Zimbabwe international after allegations of child abuse involving his son Diego surfaced.
After being dumped by his former club, Mahachi returned to Zimbabwe.
Reports emerged saying that local clubs aimed to rope in the midfielder since Supersport United had not renewed his contract.

Meanwhile, new reports suggest that Mahachi is on the radar of several South African clubs willing to sign him during the January transfer window.
Kuda Mahachi’s possible sensational return to the Dstv Premiership was confirmed by his agent, Gibson Mahachi, who told KickOff magazine that many clubs had approached him to acquire the player’s service.
“We are already in talks with a few clubs with regard to Kuda. Now that everything has been cleared around, it is time to concentrate on football,” he said.
“He is hungry to get back on the field because he lost so much while on the sidelines dealing with this case. The plan is to get him back into a club as soon as January because he is an experienced left footer who can do a job in many teams.”
Mahachi was recently set free from two counts of attempted murder by Bulawayo regional magistrate Mark Dzira.
Allegations were that Mahachi, between 25 February and 14 April 2022, assaulted his son with an iron bar on the head and mouth.
It was also claimed that Mahachi scalded his son Diego with hot water during that period. The son sustained severe burns, which resulted in him having his leg amputated.
Acquitting Mahachi on all the charges, Magistrate Dzira said that witnesses who testified against the footballer gave contradicting statements and that he evidence was not convincing enough to convict3 Mahachi.
