Murwira Booked For Operation

DYNAMOS FC utility player, Godknows Murwira, is booked to go under the surgeon’s knife this week.


Murwira’s knee was injured late last year and the injury was aggravated during pre-season training earlier this year.

He had been ruled out for the first half of 2020 season before the season was put on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The season could start in August/September after the ZIFA Emergency Committee provisionally settled for that date last week.

And Murwira, who could have managed to play even without surgery, has now opted to go with the medical advice he has been receiving.

The former Ngezi Platinum Stars player has sought to take advantage of the window provided by this break to have the surgery.

Dynamos executive chairman, Isaah Mupfurutsa, yesterday confirmed Murwira is now booked for the operation procedure.

“All things being equal, Godknows (Murwira) will be operated on during the course of this week,’’ he said.

“He is already booked for the procedure.

“The issue is that this coronavirus pandemic has affected everything in life. Under normal circumstances, he (Murwira) should have been operated on a long time ago.

“But, understandably, the process has been delayed. It’s now up to the medical team to choose when they can have the procedure, otherwise it’s booked already.”

Mupfurutsa said the club’s main concern was to make sure Murwira was successfully operated on.

“At the moment, we are mainly concerned about his well-being. He has to be in good shape. He is our player and we want to see him doing well and in a good condition,’’ said Mupfurutsa.

“This is why as a club, we decided to help him out. We can’t afford to neglect our players. Their wellness is our strength.

“We wish the operation goes well and he recovers from it as soon as possible.”

Normally, the type of operation Murwira will undergo takes between six to eight weeks to fully heal.

And, Mupfurutsa hopes all goes well for Murwira to be part of the Glamour Boys in time for the scheduled start of the delayed season.

Murwira is supposed to go back to his parent club, FC Platinum, at the expiry of his loan spell in December this year.

But, there is a possibility he will stay beyond that period on condition the two clubs find common ground as they are understood to have started negotiations towards extending the loan.

Murwira To Get Best Treatment

DYNAMOS Chairman Isaiah Mupfurutsa has dismissed social media rumours that they are neglecting utility player Godknows Murwira saying instead they are looking for the best doctor to perform surgery on the player.


Murwira is on loan at Dembare from his parent club FC Platinum.

He has a recurring knee injury that ruled him out of the last few games of last season.

However, the Glamour Boys have been paying for Murwira’s consultation fees and the scans too.

Social media has been awash with claims that Dembare were dithering on paying for Murwira’s medical expenses because “he would be reverting to his parent club soon”.

Murwira was supposed to undergo surgery early last month but failed with reports suggesting DeMbare failed to meet the expenses.

Mupfurutsa said the claims were false as they have the funds to make sure he gets the best doctor.

Dynamos recently took care of all expenses emanating from captain Partson Jaure’s injuries from a road accident.

“Yes the surgery did not go on as planned. But it was not because we didn’t have the resources, we had a lot to consider.

“It’s not only about just having him operated, we want him to be operated on by the best doctor, we don’t want a situation where we will regret having him operated.

“We want things to be properly done and we have procedures we are following,” said Mupfurutsa.

Mupfurutsa said they are doing their best to make sure the utility player gets back to full fitness as soon as possible.

“Murwira is our valued asset. We cannot neglect him now. He is our player and we would want to put our money to use.

“He has been a vital cog and we really need his services. We are trying our very best to make sure he gets the best treatment.

“Jaure’s case required a lot more than Murwira’s case. If we did it to Jaure why can’t we also take care of Murwira. We have the capacity to give our players the best when it comes to health issues,” he added.

Mupfurutsa could not shed light on when Murwira’s loan period will lapse only saying they will decide on the future once they hear from the doctor who has been attending to him.

He also said the current lockdown has not done them any favours.

“We are all victims of this Coronavirus pandemic and everything is on hold now.

“We are worried that it might affect Murwira but as you all know the situation is beyond our control.

“We will wait for the situation to normalise and start from there,” he said.
