‘Nyaope’ Kamohelo Mahlatsi Opens Up About Challenges and Departure from Kaizer Chiefs in Candid Interview

Mamohelo Mahlatsi, known as ‘Nyaope’ in football circles, recently shared insights into his experience at Kaizer Chiefs and the circumstances that led to his departure from the club.

Having joined the team in 2022 from Moroka Swallows, his departure last September marked the end of a year-long stint with the Glamour Boys.

During his time at Kaizer Chiefs, Mahlatsi made seven appearances, starting in three matches and coming on as a substitute four times.

In an exclusive interview with FARPost, he praised Chiefs as one of the top teams in the DStv Premiership, emphasizing the club’s strengths despite acknowledging that perfection in football, like in any endeavor, is elusive.

Mahlatsi hinted at undisclosed challenges during his tenure, mentioning there were aspects he couldn’t elaborate on publicly. He described his time at Chiefs positively but alluded to complexities that influenced his decision to leave the club.

Kamohelo Mahlatsi’s Perspective

“Chiefs was sharp, it’s just that some things we can’t speak about them,” Mahlatsi commented, highlighting the club’s stature while implying there were sensitive issues he chose not to discuss openly.

“But Chiefs is top, top, top. I don’t think there’s any team like Chiefs.

Everything you want is there. I can say they are the best…but we know a thing cannot be perfect.”

Departure Due to Playing Time

Expressing his rationale for leaving, Mahlatsi revealed that his decision was driven by a desire for more playing time, which he felt was limited during his tenure.

“I could see I was not playing and I spoke to them, told them I wanted to leave and stuff,” he explained.

Fortunately, the club understood his position, and they mutually agreed to part ways.

Current Status and Future Plans

Currently without a club following his departure from Chippa United at the end of the previous season, Mahlatsi reflected on his brief stint with the Chilli Boys, where he played 11 matches across various competitions.

His time there was marked by injury setbacks, impacting his availability on the pitch.


Kamohelo Mahlatsi’s journey through various clubs in South African football continues to unfold, with his experiences at Kaizer Chiefs offering valuable insights into the challenges and decisions faced by professional footballers in pursuit of their careers.
