The former Kaizer Chiefs attacker has signed a two-year contract with Ea Lla Koto and will be hoping for better luck in the PSL this time after his difficult spell with Amakhosi last time round.
The ex-Chicken Inn forward landed in South Africa on Friday to negotiate for a contract with the club from Bethlehem, and now his agent Michael Ngobeni has since confirmed a deal has been struck.
"Michelle is a Free State player now, two plus one (year contract)," Ngobeni tells KickOff.com.
Stars have not had much luck with their strikers this season, so Katsvairo has to hit the ground running to help the club climb the Absa Premiership standings. Stars, who have scored 15 goals in 18 matches this season, are in 14th place, just five points ahead of bottom-of-the-table Maritzburg United.
Stars coach Nikola Kavazovic adds: "Yes, I can confirm that Michy is a Free State Stars player. Now it's up to him how he will play."
