Latest Mahlatsi Update

Former Kaizer Chiefs attacking midfielder Kamohelo Mahlatsi is closing on signing with Chippa United, iDiski Times has been informed.  

Mahlatsi has been training with Chippa since January after things did not work out for him at cash-strapped Moroka Swallows, as reported by iDiski Times.

He was training with Swallows sometime last year after he saw his contract with Chiefs terminated after he saw little action with the Soweto giants.  

He left Chiefs in September after making seven appearances in all competitions last term, four of which were as a substitute, without scoring. 

The midfielder, who came through SuperSport United’s reserves and was sent on various loan spells by the Pretoria club, signed for Swallows from Matsatsantsa in October 2020. 

After Mahlatsi was released by Chiefs, Swallows chairman David Mogashoa released a squeaky picture on X of the player in full regalia of the Dube Birds, indicating the possibility he is coming to Izinyoni.  

But nothing materialised and the player now went to Chippa for an assessment. This publication understands it is just a matter of time before he concludes terms with the Chilli Boyz.  

If he signs with Chippa, Mahlatsi will be reunited with former coach Kwanele Kopo and Thabo September, who were appointed by the club during the Africa Cup of Nations break, with Morgan Mammila taking the technical director role.  

The 25-year-old, who has played for Ubuntu Cape Town and the University of Pretoria before, was a runner-up when SuperSport lost the MTN8 final to Benni McCarthy’s Cape Town City in the 2018/19 season in Durban.  

He was part of the delayed Olympic Games in 2021 in Tokyo, featuring in two matches as David Notoane’s side lost all three group-stage games.
