Mawiwi helped Harare City Football Club to get promotion to the Premier Soccer League in 2012.[1]

Mawiwi was the head coach of Harare City when they finished third in the Premier Soccer League title race behind Dynamos and Highlanders in 2013.[2]

He won the Coach of the Year award and Harare City was named the Most Disciplined Team.

Harare City lost the league title on a dramatic last day – falling out to Dynamos on goal difference.

On 19 July 2017, Mawiwi was unveiled as the new Hwange Football Club head coach after the coalminers fired Nation Dube and his assistant Mebelo Njekwa.[3]

He joined the club on a two-and-a-half-year contract with the mandate to save the club from relegation.

Hwange were in 15th position with 14 points on the 18-team league table when Mawiwi joined them.

Mawiwi had taken three sides from Division One to the premiership. He won promotion with Circle Cement in 2000, Gunners FC (2007), and Harare City (2011).

Chipangano was, however, relegated despite Mawiwi bringing in experienced players such as Crispen Dickson, Elvis Meleka, Crybert Muvuti, Nathan Ziwini, and teenage sensation Delic Murimba from ZPC Hwange.

Mawiwi was sacked after Hwange finished in 16th place on the log table with 37 points from 34 matches and dropped to the ZIFA Southern Region Division One League.

He had a short stint as a coach at Denver Sundowns, popularly known as Manzini Sundowns Football Club in eSwatini.[4]

Mawiwi joined the club at the beginning of December 2021 but left less than a month later after presiding over five games.

He left after the club allegedly reneged on its promises to pay him a R10 000 signing-on fee, plus a R700 winning bonus.

In February 2023, he was appointed Come Again Football Club head coach, a club in the Northern Region Soccer League.[5]

Mawiwi took over at the Kadoma-based club after Wonder Ngoko left early in 2023.


He won the 2013 Premier Soccer League Coach of the Year award.
