I’ve come back home — Chazika

FORMER Dynamos defender Nyasha Chazika is back at the Harare giants after four years of club-hopping.

Chazika graduated from the Dynamos juniors in the early 2000s before he wassigned by South African glamour club Supersport United in 2003. But  nagging injuries made sure he was never able to hold down a regular place at Matsatsantha.
He rejoined Dynamos in 2005, a club he captained as an 18-year-old during Moses Chunga’s “kidznet” era. 
Rape charges brought against him also slowed down his promising career.
Later he moved to the now-defunct Buymore and later Caps United. He won two cups with United. He didn’t see any top flight action in 2009, earning a living by playing in the Bankers Social League.
After tasting the waters Chazika believes he can fit in the Dynamos setup.
“Dynamos is my home,” he said. “That’s where I belong. I was bred there. I feel this is the only club I can achieve something with, which I haven’t been able to do with other clubs.”
During the offseason, Dynamos coach Elvis Chiweshe has been calling on the club’s former players to “come back home”, a drive which has resulted in the return of Esau Amisi and Ali Cassim.
Local football pundits have attributed the club’s failure in recent seasons to the lack of home-grown talent in the team. 
“For me Dynamos is everything,” he said. “The atmosphere, the fans; everything about the club just motivates everyone associated with it.”
