Former Kaizer Chiefs Star Kamohelo Mahlatsi Edges Closer to Chippa United Transfer

Former Kaizer Chiefs attacker Kamohelo Mahlatsi is currently in the spotlight as updates on his search for a new club emerge.

Mahlatsi departed from Chiefs at the beginning of the 2023/24 PSL season, facing challenges in securing a spot in the matchday squad due to injuries and stiff competition in the midfield.

Despite featuring in seven matches across various competitions during his time at Chiefs, Mahlatsi could not contribute goals or assists.

The 25-year-old, who initially joined Amakhosi in 2022 from Moroka Swallows, has been without a club for over six months.

Trials and Challenges: Nyaope’s Journey Post-Kaizer Chiefs

Following his departure from Chiefs, Mahlatsi underwent trials with Swallows, but the deal did not materialize.

However, in January, he resurfaced at Chippa United for an assessment, marking a potential comeback to competitive football in the second half of the season.

Mahlatsi has participated in Chilli Boys’ friendlies, and early indications suggest that he has impressed the club’s technical team.

The midfielder, a former Bafana Bafana youth international, seeks to reignite his career under the coaching of Thabo September and Kwanele Kopo, who previously worked with him at SuperSport United’s development ranks.

Anticipated Move: Chippa United and Mahlatsi’s Future

Recent reports suggest that Kamohelo Mahlatsi is on the verge of completing a move to Chippa United.

Sources reveal that Mahlatsi’s short stint with the club has been impressive, showcasing dedication that has garnered high hopes from the coaching staff.

Chippa United, under the guidance of Thabo September and Kwanele Kopo, aims to strengthen their squad with Mahlatsi’s addition, eyeing a competitive performance for the remainder of the season.

As the deal is expected to be finalized in the coming days, Mahlatsi’s potential move to Chippa United reflects a significant step in his quest for a return to top-flight football.

Goalkeeping Addition: Darren Johnson Joins Chippa United

In a separate development, Chippa United has bolstered its goalkeeping department with the signing of Darren Johnson.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper, who was a free agent after parting ways with AmaTuks in August 2023, joins Chippa United to compete for a position between the sticks.

Johnson will vie for the goalkeeper spot with Stanley Nwabali and Lloyd Kazapua, both of whom participated in the 2023 AFCON with Nigeria and Namibia, respectively.

Kamohelo Mahlatsi’s journey post-Kaizer Chiefs reflects the resilience and determination of a player seeking to overcome challenges and revive his career.

The potential move to Chippa United aligns with the club’s ambitions to strengthen its squad and compete at a higher level in the league.

As Mahlatsi and Chippa United enter into a new chapter, the dynamics of player-team partnerships continue to shape the landscape of South African football.

The addition of Darren Johnson to Chippa United’s goalkeeping ranks further emphasizes the club’s commitment to building a competitive squad for the ongoing season.
