Supersport United says it will not renew Kudakwashe Mahachi’s contract which expires on 30 June 2022.

The Warriors striker is currently suspended by SuperSport following child abuse allegations he is facing.

Speaking on South African radio station Power 98.7, SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews said the club will not renew Mahachi’s contract when it expires. He said:

He’s been on suspension, I’ve met with him personally and his lawyer, and we’ve just decided that from our part as a football club this matter is a serious matter, that he needs to go and attend to and see to his family and his priorities.

We suspended him from all football activities at that time, he remained suspended. His contract expires on the 30th of June, so there won’t really be any further action on our part.

We’ve encouraged him to focus on clearing his name and making sure his child gets the best-rehabilitated care possible, given the current situation.

That is something you’d need to speak to Kuda about, as, from a club perspective, his contract expires at the end of the month, it won’t be renewed.

He remains on suspension until all these issues between himself and his personal family situation are resolved.
