AmaZulu and Malawi defender Limbikani Mzava brought his mother to tears during the FIFA International break when he surprised her with an incredible gift.
Mzava, 27, left his homeland a decade ago when Bloemfontein Celtic lured him from ESCOM United and he's since developed into one of the most consistent defenders in the DStv Premiership.
Stints with Mpumalanga Black Aces, Golden Arrows, Highlands Park and now Usuthu has seen him rack up over 200 top-flight appearances in South African football.
His time in Mzansi has coincided with his emergence as one of the Flames' most important players with 33 senior international appearances - his experience played a pivotal role in their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualification.

How did he celebrate?
Mzava immediately returned to his hometown after pipping Uganda to AFCON qualification last week buoyed by their historic achievement and rewarded his mother something special from the incredible career he's forged since leaving his humble beginnings.
His mother, clearly in disbelief by her son's incredible gesture burst into tears before he offered her a warm embrace in the video that has gone viral on social media.
It was the first time in three years Mzava had been home and the captain made sure he used the opportunity his national team commitments allowed during the Covid-19 pandemic that's created strict traveling restrictions.
Did you know?
Mzava made his senior international debut at the age of 17.
