Kuda Mahachi

Warriors forward Kuda Mahachi has been suspended by his South African club SuperSport over allegations of abusing his four-year-old son.

The Pretoria-based outfit confirmed on Friday night they had been made aware of ‘serious’ allegations against the Zimbabwe international winger after his ex-wife Marita Ndlovu accused him of pouring hot water on his son Diego causing third-degree burns that saw the minor’s right leg being amputated.

In a statement, SuperSport United said the 28-year-old has now been suspended by the DStv Premiership club with immediate effect to attend to his family and the allegations.

“SuperSport United FC has become aware of the serious allegations levelled against our player, Kudawashe Mahachi,” SuperSport United said.

“The club has suspended the player from all club football activities with immediate effect. He has been advised to attend to his family & the allegations against him. The matter is subject to judicial processes. The club will make no further comment at this time.”

Mahachi has only made eight appearances for SuperSport in the league this season, with his last came coming in the 2-1 defeat to Maritzburg in February.

The former Highlanders and Chicken Inn player revealed this week that he has engaged his lawyers in an attempt to try and prove his innocence after allegations that the star scalded his four-year-old son with boiling water.
