He is now awaiting reverse clearance from the National Football Association of Swaziland.

A source revealed yesterday that the big goalkeeper was training with the gold miners and if his papers came through from Swaziland, he would be signing with How Mine.

Mazarura, who early in the year went for trials with South African side Ajax Cape Town, has been playing for Mbabane Swallows.

“He is in the country and is training with How Mine, but his papers have not yet been sorted out. He is waiting for his reverse clearance from Swaziland,” the source said.

The stocky shot-stopper is reportedly tied to ambitious Bulawayo side Chicken Inn and the club’s secretary Tavengwa Hara at the weekend told our sister publication Standard Sport that they would be loaning out the goalkeeper to any club interested in his services.

How Mine chairman Mlondlozi Nkomo yesterday confirmed that his technical staff was assessing the former Warriors goalkeeper.
“Like the coaches have always said, they will need a goalkeeper, defender, midfielder and a striker. They are indeed assessing Ephraim Mazarura and by the end of the week, we will know if we will be registering any player during the window period,” Nkomo said.

After confirming Chicken Inn’s acquisition of Clement Matawu at the weekend, Hara said they would be registering Mazarura with the club.
“We are, however, going to loan Mazarura to clubs that are interested in him,” he said.
The rumour mill also has it that How Mine, targeting Botswana-based Takudzwa Ndoro who has since signed for be Mobile League BDF XI, have also set their eyes on struggling Motor Action’s Marlon Jani.

Former Highlanders goalkeeper Ndodana Sibanda has reportedly tried his luck at How Mine while striker Qinani “Chroma” Sibanda from Motlakatse Power Dynamos in Botswana, is also heading to the Metallon Gold-sponsored How Mine.

Bulawayo giants Highlanders have reportedly parted ways with striker Cleopas “Balotelli” Dube, who has made his way to Division One side Bulawayo Chiefs with Bosso opting to replace him with Gabriel Nyoni, who was on loan to the Rahman Gumbo-coached Chiefs.

Nyoni played his debut for the Bosso senior team against Chicken Inn on Sunday at BF, coming in as substitute for Njabulo “Tshiki” Ncube in the 64th minute.

Elsewhere, FC Platinum are said to be considering loaning out Welcome Ndiweni to give him game time.
The midfielder was also believed to be on his way back to Highlanders.
