HARARE – Zimbabwean coach Kaitano Tembo has been fired by South African club Sekhukhune United just six months after being appointed by the Kempton Park-based outfit.

The former Dynamos and Zimbabwe defender joined the DStv Premiership club in June after being sacked by SuperSport United in April following a long coaching career with the Pretoria side.

52-year-old Tembo left SuperSport in April after spending over two decades with the club.

Prior to taking the full-time coaching role at the club in 2018, Tembo served as assistant coach to Gavin Hunt, Stuart Baxter and Eric Tinkler.

He has now been let go by Sekhukhune following a poor start to the season, with the club’s CEO Jonas Malatji saying in a statement: “Sekhukhune United Football Club wishes to announce that it has parted ways with Coach Kaitano Tembo with immediate effect.

“I wish to thank Coach Kaitano for his dedication and hard work whilst at the club. Ever the Professional that he is, and his impeccable work ethic, the decision to part ways was an extremely difficult one.”

Tembo said he wished the club “the very best.”

The former hard-tackling defender has previously been linked with the Zimbabwe national team, which he represented as a player at the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations.
