Mahachi’s First Strike: Ex-SuperSport star scores maiden goal for Medeama SC

Home » Mahachi’s First Strike: Ex-SuperSport star scores maiden goal for Medeama SC

Ghanaian football witnessed a historic moment on Wednesday as former SuperSport United star Kuda Mahachi netted his first goal in his first start for reigning champions Medeama SC. 

The 30-year-old winger, aptly nicknamed ‘Nkembe’ for his pace, proved his worth with the decisive strike in the 34th minute against Basake Holly Stars, propelling Medeama into the next round of the MTN FA Cup.

Both triumph and adversity have marked Mahachi’s journey to this pivotal moment. Unattached since June 2022 due to personal struggles, he was falsely accused of child abuse, charges later cleared by the Zimbabwean courts. The Zimbabwe international persevered, joining Medeama on a one-year deal in August, becoming the first Zimbabwean player in Ghana’s top league.

Before Wednesday’s heroics, Mahachi made a substitute appearance in Medeama’s 2-0 away win against Legon Cities. But his first start proved to be the stage for his redemption and talent to shine. His goal, the only one of the match, showcased the attacking prowess that once saw him excel in Zimbabwe and South Africa, playing for clubs like Mamelodi Sundowns, Golden Arrows, and Orlando Pirates.

Kuda Mahachi’s success extends beyond the confines of the pitch. His return to form and exoneration from the false accusations serve as a beacon of resilience and hope. His performance against Basake Holly Stars is not merely a personal victory but a testament to his enduring talent and unwavering determination.

With his first goal under his belt, he looks poised to leave his mark on Ghanaian football. His journey of hardship and triumph inspires aspiring footballers and is a reminder that even amidst adversity, talent and dedication can pave the way for success.

He will now be hoping to catch the attention of the national team coaches ahead of the next round of FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Zimbabwe have played two qualifiers against Nigeria and Rwanda. Both ended in draws, and they will be looking to pick themselves up in June 2024.
