Mudimu has been a stalwart for the Druids side this season, often dominant in midfield and scoring three goals in four appearances in Welsh Premier League last month earning him a Player of the Month and Goal of the Month nomination.
Mudimu joined the Druids just this summer after a successful trial, having previously plying his trade for Stalybridge Celtic in the English pyramid system, and has slotted in immediately, and this extended purple patch of form has seen him earn his maiden call-up for the national team.
The Zimbabwean squad will play tournament hosts Zambia in a semi-final, whilst Angola play South Africa in the other semi-final, on March 22 with the victors heading to a final, whilst the two defeated sides will face off in the third-place play off the following Sunday on March 25.

Last year, Zimbabwe won the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) Cup, beating Zambia 3-1 on 9 July but exited the 2017 African Cup of Nations in the group stage.
The Zimbabwe Football Association, ranked 105th in the FIFA World Rankings, will thus be hoping Mudimu’s addition can propel the squad to an even more successful future.
