Stellenbosch midfielder, Sibongiseni Mthethwa, has joined Kaizer Chiefs on a permanent transfer after a buy-out clause in his contract was activated.
The 29-year-old joined Stellenbosch from Black Leopards in January 2022 and has been linked with Amakhosi since the beginning of the season.
“When Mthethwa initially joined the club, a buy-out clause was negotiated into his contract and that has now been activated by Kaizer Chiefs,” Stellenbosch, CEO Rob Benadie said.
“It’s always sad to part ways with a player and person of Ox’s calibre but we would like to wish him all of the best in this next step of his career.
“He was a consummate professional throughout his time in Stellenbosch and it goes without saying that his influence on the pitch and in the dressing room will be missed.
“Apart from his on-field contributions, he also played an active role in our communities and must be commended for the enthusiastic manner in which he embraced the SFC family and supporters.
“Mthethwa embodied the values of the club, and we would like to thank him for his immense contributions to our cause over the last two years.”
