Black Rhinos have axed four players over disciplinary issues.
The quartet which include Masimba Mambare, Augustine Mbara, Honey Chimutimunzeve and Kibaki Dhlamini was dismissed last week, during the AFCON break, for inciting other players to engage in a strike.
The protest resulted following a delay of payment of winning bonuses by Sponsor Netone.
Meanwhile, Rhinos are yet to confirm whether they will sign new players to fill in the gap left by the departed players during in this mid-season transfer window.
The army side face Dynamos on Saturday in their next league match.
