But having initially penned a one year deal, the KZN club has have exercised the first option they have over the tough-tackling central midfielder and have extended his stay by another six months.
"It is good for the player, he has proved himself what he is worth within a short space of time," Phiri's manager Gibson Mahachi told the Chronicle.
The 27-year-old Phiri has featured in 20 of 24 league games for Abafana bes'Thende this season, scoring two goals for Clinton Larsen's team.
He is one of three Zimbabweans at the club, the others being Kuda Mahachi and Knox Mutizwa.
Meanwhile, another of Phiri's compatriot's in South Africa's top flight, former Dynamos defender Augustine Mbara, has returned home after his contract with Gordon Igesund's Highlands Park was terminated.
