The luxury coach donated by former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Nyasha Mushekwi to his former Zimbabwean club that gave him his first taste of professional football has finally been branded and now awaits delivery to the Harare based club.
The former Zimbabwe Warriors international currently plays for Chinese club Zhejiang Greentown FC, bought the luxury coach for $120 000 in China.
The coach was sent to South Africa for the CAPS colours branding, which is now complete, and will hit the streets in time for the “Battle of Harare” this weekend when CAPS take on arch enemies Dynamos.
The luxury coach might be a better incentive and motivating factor for the Green Machine as Caps United are affectionately known amongst their legion of fans to claim the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League title which pays a paltry ZWL$70 000 (R60 000).
Caps United who had 5 point cushion going into the last 6 matches seem to be stuttering towards the finish lines as they now retain a 2 point lead with only 3 games to go.
Theirs however is a tough title run in compared to their title rivals as they face much stronger opposition and if they are to claim their 6th league crown.
The bus is definitely a shot in the arm for Makepekepe and their legion of supporters and compared to the bus they were using until now (see pics below), it is definitely two worlds apart.
This is a massive upgrade for one of the biggest community teams from Zimbabwe who can now gladly match their rivals even off the field.
