Makhehlene Makhaula is a South African soccer player who plays as a midfielder for South African Premier Division side AmaZulu.


He was born on the 17th of November 1989 in Mohlakeng, South Africa. As of 2023, he is 33 years old and celebrates his birthday on November 17th every year.


The 33-year old started his football career at Free State Stars (no longer exist). Unfortunately, the club sold their status to Casric Stars not so long ago.

He spent five seasons at Free State Stars before joining Highlands Park during the 2019-2020 season. Highlands Park were also sold at the end of that season.

After the Tembisa based side sold their top flight status to TS Galaxy, Makhehlene Makhaula then joined the KwaZulu-Natal based side, Amazulu fc.

At Usuthu, Makhehlene Makhaula managed to stay two seasons and a half. He joined Orlando Pirates during the January transfer window, despite his contract expiring at the end of this season.

So far, things have not been working out for him at the Buccaneers as the competition is too much in the midfield, when compared to Amazulu fc.

At Orlando Pirates, Makhehlene Makhaula has only 3 appearances and has only started one match at the club, which was against Swallows FC.

He has not featured for the club in their past two games, which includes the SuperSport United match, which they won by 1-0 on Saturday afternoon.


The salary of the well-experienced midfielder is yet to be released to the media. However, if we estimate, Makhehlene Makhaula could be earning around R150 000 at Orlando Pirates per month.

For a football player, that is just an average salary. He will be turning 34 before this year ends, so it is necessary for him to choose better deals than loyalty.

Some might wonder if Makhehlene Makhaula would be deserving that kind of ridiculous salary, well, the answer is yes.

The midfielder was one of the best players at Amazulu and the rumours stated that the Buccaneers paid around R1 million to Usuthu for Makhehlene Makhaula in January.

If they can pay that kind of amount for him while his contract will expire in just few months to come, then it is likely that he sealed a huge deal with the club.

NB: This salary of Makhehlene Makhaula is not confirmed, however, it was estimated by The Kasi-boy website.
