Her signing will improve the ranks of the Blues and Whites as they bid to extend their domestic dominance in Belarus and excel in Women’s Champions League campaign later this year.
She becomes the sixth South African to move to Europe since the country’s Women’s World Cup debut in France after Ode Fulutudilu, Refiloe Jane, Jermaine Seoposenwe, Linda Motlhalo and Thembi Kgatlana.
Mbane will hope to make her competitive debut when Minsk face Isloch-RGUOR in the Belarusian Women’s Super Cup on March 22.
