Born in London, Mwandwe moved to Wirral as a youngster, and played for the Wirral Schoolboys. He joined the Shrewsbury Town youth system in 2013. During the 2017/18 season, he scored 20 goals for the Shrewsbury U18s.

He made his senior debut for Shrewsbury Town, as a last-minute substitute, in a 3–0 victory against West Bromwich Albion U21s in an EFL Trophy group-stage match on 3 October 2017. In October 2018, he signed his first professional contract with Shrewsbury before joining Newtown for his first stint at the club on a loan deal in August 2019.

He joined Newtown on a permanent deal in February 2021 following his release from Shrewsbury and in January 2022 he extended his contract with the club for an additional 18 months helping the club earn a 2022–23 UEFA Europa Conference League qualification spot. He was named to the league Team of the Season, and was also nominated for the Young Player of the Year award. In his final match for the club on 14 July 2022, ahead of his transfer to Canada, he scored a goal in the second leg of the UEFA Conference League 1st qualification round match against Havnar Bóltfelag of the Faroe Islands, to level the score on aggregate and converted the final kick in the penalty shootout to help Newtown advance to the next round.

In July 2022, he joined Canadian Premier League club HFX Wanderers FC through the 2023 season, with a club option for 2024. In January 2023, he returned to Newtown on a short-term two month loan, until 28 February. He then returned to the Wanderers for the 2023 CPL season, before departing the club after the conclusion of the season and once again rejoined the Robins.
