Moses Chunga (born 17 October 1965) is a retired Zimbabwean footballer who played as a midfielder for Dynamos, Eendracht Aalst and the Zimbabwe national football team.

He was born to parents of Malawian descent, but chose to represent his nation of birth at international level. He is considered to be one of Zimbabwe’s greatest ever midfielders. In 2002, following a spell in charge at Dynamos, he was appointed head coach of Shabanie Mine.

Chunga won his first managerial honours with Gunners F.C., who became Zimbabwe Premier League champions in 2009. He subsequently left the Gunners before the start of the following season and joined fellow Harare-side Shooting Stars.

In June 2011, CAPS United announced that Moses Chunga had left the club, a day after his team was knocked out of the quarter finals of the BancABC Sup8r by Highlanders. He was re-appointed as coach at Gunners F.C. a few weeks later.

In December 2012, Chunga revisted Aalst and was honoured by his old club and by the City Council, being invited to sign the Golden Book of Aalst, the community’s highest civic honour.

The former Warriors captain in currently the coach of Hippo Valley FC, a team he recently got promoted into the Premiership amid reports that the team management had bizarrely asked him to spend a month working in the sugar estates of the Lowveld, as part of an induction programme to regularise his employment at Tongaat Hulett, sponsors of the team.
