Meanwhile, Ngwane is a central defender who is expected to add value to the club’s defence.
“I’m happy to get my chance to play with the senior players,” Buthelezi told Maritzburg’s official site.
“Since I was young I have been working hard for this opportunity and finally it’s come and I’m ready to grab it with both hands.”
Zuma is eager to help Ernst Middendorp’s side to achieve some of the goals they have set as the club and perform to the best of his ability.
“I’m excited, happy to join the team. I’ve been waiting for this opportunity. My goal is to push harder and help the team to win cups and build on the position in the DStv Premiership,” Zuma reveals.
Ngwane says playing with experienced players in the South African football top-flight promises to be a steep learning curve, and he is ready to learn from them.
“I feel so happy to join the first-team, and I will take this opportunity and give my best. I want to gain from the more experienced players,” said the promising defender.
