The 28-year-old had signed a two-year contract in January 2017, but left the Tunisian side due to failure to pay salaries on time. He had made only 10 appearances and scoring five goals and four assists. Rusike, is now back in South Africa at Cape Town City.
Rusike signed for Club Africain in January 2017 and only received his $40 000 signing-on fee four months late. Rusike took up the matter with FIFA and was represented by the Footballers Union of Zimbabwe in his efforts to recover his dues.
