Bhasera, a Zimbabwean international left-back, began his career with Harare United before moving to South Africa with Tembisa Classic in 2004. A year later he joined Maritzburg United and his performances there brought him to the attention of leading South African club Kaizer Chiefs. After two impressive years with the club, he looked set for a move to Portsmouth, but a dispute over his contract saw the deal fall through.
After securing his release from the Chiefs he returned to England, training with Argyle whilst a work permit application was made. He finally signed for the club after a successful appeal and a prolonged wait for international clearance.
Despite the club's impending relegation, Bhasera did enough in the final weeks of the 2009-10 season to suggest that the protracted signing was worthwhile. This form carried over to the next campaign, when he occasionally played in a more advanced role under new manager Peter Reid. During the January transfer window he looked set to join Premier League side Blackpool on loan, with a view to a permanent transfer, but the deal fell through and he remained at Home Park.
In March 2011 Bhasera suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury which kept him out of action for the next seven months. On his return he made a significant contribution to the side which managed to retain the club's League status, playing regularly at both left-back and on the left side of midfield.
With his three-year contract due to expire in the summer of 2013 and having won the Player of the Year award for 2012-13, Argyle made overtures to retain Bhasera, but no contact was made with the club over the summer and he chose not to report for pre-season training. Trials with Yeovil Town and Turkish side Elazigspor amounted to nothing and with EU work permit issues complicating matters, Bhasera decided to return to South Africa to sign for Premier League side Bidvest Wits in Johannesburg on a one-year deal with the option of a second.
Bhasera remained with Wits until July 2016, when he moved to Pretoria to join South Africa Premier Division side SuperSport United as a free agent.
