Katlego "Mahoota" Mashego (born May 18, 1982 in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga) is a South African football (soccer) striker and midfielder for Mamelodi Sundowns and South Africa.

Mashego started his career at Hellenic FC and Silver Stars before moving to SuperSport United in 2006, where he won the Premier Soccer League in 2008.

He then moved to Orlando Pirates in January 2009 and captured his second league title in 2011.

Mashego was transferred from Orlando Pirates to Golden Arrows in 2011, with the player signing a 3-year deal.[1]

He left Golden Arrows after only a single season and was signed on a free transfer by Moroka Swallows.[2] Mashego finished the 2012-13 Premier Soccer League season as the league's top scorer with 13 goals.[3]

Mashego joined current club Mamelodi Sundowns in August 2013 in a deal which saw Edward Manqele move in the opposite direction as a replacement on loan.[4]
