Mkhwanazi joins Thanda on a one-year loan-deal from Orlando Pirates. Also joining the Richards Bay-born midfielder at Amabhubesi is Tshepiso Tshabalala and Reason Chiloane, all from Pirates.
Chiloane tried out with Mpumalanga Black Aces recently but didn't manage to seal a contract, whilst Mkhwanazi was hoping to join his former coach Owen Da Gama at Bloemfontein Celtic.
Meanwhile, African Warriors CEO Bafana Khumalo told KickOff.com that his club have also signed Tsietsi Mkhwanazi from Pirates.
"We have also managed to extend a loan-deal with Pirates for the services of Thulani Maseko for another season," he added.
