Ndhlovu was a striker or midfielder who likely played as inside-forward given that he wore the jersey n°10 for his entire career, which he spent at Mufulira Mine Team from 1956 to 1975. Captain from 1960, he led the club to win the Zambian league in 1963, 1965, 1966, 1967 and 1969. He capped for Zambia 19 times from 1964 to 1969, scoring 8 goals. He also started coaching Mufulira in 1966 and Zambia in 1967. He was named Zambian Sportsman of the Year in 1964.
Known for his spectacular performances with his n°10 for both Mufulira and Zambia, Ndhlovu was the perfect entertainer thanks to abilities that were sensational for those watching. He was skilled on the ball, possessed remarkable close control and a deadly shot. But most importantly, he's considered one of the greatest ever dribblers in the history of the country alongside the likes of Alex Chola, Kalusha Bwalya and Gibby Mbasela. No one could understand how easily Ndhlovu could get past defenders.
