FORMER DYNAMOS defender Peace Makaha reckons a new challenge motivated his move away from the Glamour Boys.
Makaha’s last days with DeMbare were not as pleasant after he was suspended towards the end of the season and has resurfaced at Manica Diamonds.
“As you grow you need to get a new challenge and explore new things in your career, I felt this was the right time for me to step away from Dynamos.
“I am happy here, I don’t think I’ll regret this move and look forward to making memories here,” he said.
The hard tackling Makaha, who is known for motivating the dressing room, said he will always appreciate his days at DeMbare.
“I had been with the Dynamos for quite a long time; they gave me a lot as a player so I won’t forget my time there.
“I remember when I first played for them, it was an emotional day because I had hoped the day will come but it’s time to move on and concentrate on this new adventure,” he added.
Manica Diamonds have already invested a lot into their squad and Makaha said the idea of being part of a new project lured him to Mutare.
“This is a big opportunity for me, like this is a new thing so I felt humbled by the offer to join them and contribute as much as I can, so I grabbed the opportunity.
“I hope I can continue to improve and become a better player, we can definitely be successful here,” he said.
The 21-year-old said he his first interaction with veteran coach Luke Masomere gave him the stability he needed in a new environment.
“He is a good man, we haven’t been together for a long time but the short moments I had of him gave me assurance for the future so I look forward to working with him,” he added.
