Durban - AmaZulu have boosted their squad after acquiring the signatures of the industrious Togolese defender Ouro Akoriko from Free State Stars and the Zambian international striker Bornwell Mwape in the current off-season period.

Usuthu endured one of their disappointing Absa Premiership campaigns last season despite their narrow Top 10 finish on the log standings.
Craig Rosslee’s team will be looking to strengthen up their team for next season.

A source close to the KwaZulu-Natal-based outfit confirmed to Sport24 that the duo are now on the club books and they will be involved in the off-season warm-up matches.

“The big defender Ouro Akoriko from Free State Stars has signed with us,” said the source.

“Also, we have signed Bornwell Mwape from Zambia.

“Akoriko joined us from Stars on a free transfer and he has agreed to sign a three-year-contract with us.

“Mwape signed a pre-contract with us a while back.

“Now he has completed his two-year-contract with the club.

“It is now official; the two players will be with us during our pre-season games.”

Akoriko played a significant role in helping his former team, Eila Koto, to avoid the Premier Soccer League (PSL) relegation and promotion playoffs after they finished 14th in the standings, only one point above rookies, Polokwane City.

Akoriko, 26, was on the scoresheet in a 3-0 win for Stars against Moroka Swallows in their last game of the season, ensuring the QwaQwa-based team an automatic qualification for next season’s instalment of the top flight football.

Meanwhile, Mwape, 22, joins Usuthu from Nchanga Rangers of Zambia after a disappointing trial period with the Swedish side Malmo FF.
