Obadiah Danger Tarumbwa (born 25 November 1985 in Bulawayo) is a Zimbabwean football player who plays for Chicken Inn in the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League as an attacking midfielder.


In February 2008, he signed a 6-month deal with Belgian first division team Cercle Brugge.[1] At Cercle he was reunited with his former Highlanders FC colleagues Vusumuzi Nyoni and Honour Gombami, by whom he was tipped to the Cercle board. He is a member of the Zimbabwe national football team.

His contract with Cercle Brugge was ended on 13 March 2009. He returned to his home country and signed for Bantu Rovers.

On 2 August 2012, Tarumbwa returned to his homeland having been tipped to join Dynamos of Zimbabwe, but turned down the move after failing to agree terms.[2] He joined Cypriot Second Division club Ermis Aradippou and got the number 7 jersey.

On 29 December 2012, Tarumbwa landed in Kenya to sign a two-year contract with 2009 Kenyan Premier League champions Sofapaka. The deal was finalised on 2 January 2013.[3][4]
