Career

He started his career at How Mine Football Club where he made a name for himself as a reliable striker. During the 2013 soccer season, Simba was How Mine's leading goal scorer with a tally of six goals. While at How Mine, he was was spotted by the then warriors coach Ian "Dhibango" Gorowa and given a run in the side that represented the country at the CHAN finals in 2014.[2] The signing of Sithole by Ajax was almost like a fairytale as the player never went for trials but was just offered a deal for two years.[3] Simba Sithole's contract with Ajax was terminated just eight months into the season which saw him coming back to Zimbabwe where he signed for Highlanders Football Club but he did not have better fortunes with Bosso as his contract expired without him kicking a ball for the Bulawayo giants[4]
