Some Kaizer Chiefs players become well-known before making DStv Premiership debuts. An example is the highly-rated left-back Unathi Omega Mdaka.

In addition to making his name in the DStv Diski Challenge, the 20-year-old Mdaka was in the big news when Kaizer Chiefs announced his departure from Amakhosi last year. Mdaka, together with his former teammate, Puso Dithejane, were released from Naturena for refusing to stand as ball-boys in a senior team game at the FNB Stadium. The duo were later released with Kaizer Chiefs putting price tags of R1.5 million on each player as compensation for the club’s development investment.

Dithejane later joined TS Galaxy, where he excelled in 14 appearances in the DStv Premiership and Nedbank Cup. His former Kaizer Chiefs peer Mdaka later started to train with AmaZulu but did not sign a deal.

“He [Omega Mdaka] was training with us for a week, but from there, I think he was a good player, very interesting for the club,” AmaZulu coach Pablo Franco Martin told iDiski Times in April.

“For the future of the club, he showed 100% but from what I heard there was some problem with the negotiations between the clubs and his release clause from [Kaizer] Chiefs, so it was impossible to finalise the deal.

“This is the only thing I heard and that was a long time ago and if I’m not mistaken that was November,” the Spaniard cocluded.

SPOTTED AT STELLENBOSCH FC

Meanwhile, Mdaka has been spotted at Stellenbosch. While Stellies have not made any statements, the former Kaizer Chiefs star was part of DStv Diski team’s league celebrations last week.
