FC Platinum spokesperson Chido Chizondo confirmed to NewsDay Sport that Chikwende’s departure from the club was imminent. She said:
It’s not yet confirmed which club he is heading to, but for now, we can confirm that he is set to leave for Tanzania.
Simba have placed their offer, while Azam are also interested. So at this stage, we are waiting to hear the results when he goes there.
Simba are reportedly assessing two other Zimbabweans — Caps United winger Ian Nyoni and former FC Platinum defender Kelvin Moyo — with the intention to bolster their squad for the CAF African Champions League.
Should Chikwende opt for Azam, he will join the trio of Prince Dube, Bruce Kangwa and Never Tigere who have already established themselves at the club.
