Dynamos have appointed a new head coach following the departure of Tonderai Ndiraya.

Ndiraya’s contract was not renewed after spending three years at the Glamour Boys.

He has been replaced by Herbert Maruwa, who left Black Rhinos in July this year.

“Dynamos Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of a new technical team for the 2023 Season,” a statement from the Harare Giants reads.

” The club has with immediate effect appointed Mr Herbert Maruwa as Head Coach of the senior team.

Maruwa, nicknamed “Jompano” has a CAF A Licence he obtained in 2014 when he was still the Dynamos juniors coach. During his time as Dynamos junior coach, he groomed players such as Partson Jaure, Blessing Moyo, King Nadolo, Nigel Gandare, Brian Five, Leeroy Murape, Farai Mupasiri, Collins Dhuwa, Carlos Rusere, Abel Gwatidzo, Donald Malajila, Brian Chinhoyi and Tichaona Mabvura

Maruwa was fired by Black Rhinos on 27 July 2022 for what the club’s secretary general Colonel Edward Mutukwa said was “unbecoming behaviour during match days which has tainted the corporate image of the club and the organisation at large”.

Maruwa reportedly engaged in “juju” rites on matchdays and refused to take advice from his colleagues to shun that behaviour
Maruwa was the coach at Mbabane Highlanders in Swaziland. He was fired barely three months in charge.

In March 2017, Herbert Maruwa reached a mutual agreement with the Highlanders Board, headed by lawyer Zweli Jele, for the two parties to part ways.

In 2017, Maruwa joined Black Rhinos as a replacement to club legend Stanford Mtizwa who did not have the requisite CAF A coaching licence.

He was one of the coaches chosen to attend the UEFA B coaching course in Germany in January 2020.

Maruwa is a former development coach for Dynamos Football Club. He was part of Callisto Pasuwa’s trailblazing Dynamos backroom staff. Maruwa also coached Black Mamba in Swaziland. He also coached Eastern Region Division One side Hartley in 2015 before he left for Swaziland
