Midfielder Kudakwashe Mahachi has explained why his Orlando Pirates team-mates didn’t attend his wedding held last weekend.

The 25-year-old tied the know with his sweetheart, Rose, at Nesbitt Castle in Bulawayo and several football personalities were in attendance.

Club Brugge midfielder Marvelous Nakamba served as the best man while Kaizer Chiefs defender Teenage Hadebe and Highlanders’ Bukhosi Sibanda were among the groomsmen.

In an interview with B-Metro, Mahachi said that his Pirates team-mates failed to show up at wedding because they were busy with promoting the Carling Black Label Cup.

“Unfortunately, my teammates at Orlando Pirates didn’t manage to come for my wedding, they have been attending launch functions of the annual Carling Black Label Cup that have been happening since last week in Johannesburg and other surrounding areas,” explained Mahachi.

“Everyone in the team was very supportive ahead of my big day, and the club sent a congratulatory message.”

Ex-Pirates and Chicken Inn striker Tendai Ndoro, former Bosso duo of Zephania Ngodzo and Thabani Moyo graced the event along with former Chicken Inn midfielder Thabani Goredema, Bosso assistant coach Mandla “Lulu” Mpofu and Gift Lunga (Snr).
