Zimbabwe stars set SA Premiership alightSAVIOUS KWINIKA
JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – ZIMBABWEAN players plying their trade in neighbouring South Africa have struck a rich vein of form at the right time as the countdown to the Africa Cup of Nations begins.
The Absa Premiership’s man-of-the-moment Tendai Ndoro, and Orlando Pirates Football Club was again unstoppable on Tuesday as he grabbed a brace for his side in a 2-1 win away to Ajax Cape Town.

Ndoro has scored ALL Pirates’ goals to steer his side to the top of the premiership logo standings.
If Ndoro’s form is anything to go by, this season, he might be the serious contender for the premiership top goal scorer, the award won by Collins Mbesuma of then Mpumalanga Black Aces.
Meanwhile, Ndoro’s countrymen Charlton Mashumba and Marshall Munetsi, were on target as their respective sides, Highlands Park and Baroka FC respectively, played an eventful match at the Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa, also on Tuesday.
