Chiefs continue to strengthen their squad for the coming season

Home » Chiefs continue to strengthen their squad for the coming season

Kaizer Chiefs have bolstered their squad with the acquisition of a Marumo Gallants striker ahead of the 2023/24 season. 

The forward is a welcome addition to Chiefs, who did not have a reliable goal scorer last season. The club only scored 32 goals in 30 DStv Premiership matches while conceding 33. 

Ranga Chivaviro will be expected to add the much-needed firepower upfront as Chiefs look to end their eight-year-long trophy draught. 

Chivaviro arrives at Chiefs after a storming season with Gallants, whom he helped reach the CAF Confederation Cup semi-finals. 

He scored 17 goals in all competitions. But his efforts were not enough to save Gallants from relegation to the Motsepe Foundation Championship.

Gallants announced Chivaviro’s move to Chiefs on Friday in a statement, where they also thanked all the other departures for the services. 


“Today marks the end of an exciting and eventful football season. Marumo Gallants Football Club has celebrated fantastic successes as well as some very disappointing losses along the way.

“As the football season draws to a close, Gallants would like to take the opportunity to thank the players, technical team, supporters, sponsors, the media and partners who have rallied behind Bahlabane ba Ntwa.

“With seasonal contracts officially coming to an end today [30 June], outgoing players have received clearances to join other teams.

“Gallants confirms the departures of, among others, Ranga Chivaviro [Kaizer Chiefs F.C.], Katlego Otladisa [Orlando Pirates F.C.], Ismael Toure [Stellenbosch F.C.] and Lesiba Nku [Mamelodi Sundowns F.C.].

“Technical team contracts have also come to an end. Negotiations will continue with players and technical team members who may be retained for the upcoming season and those with existing contracts extending into the 2023/2024 season.”

In addition, Gallants chairman Abram Sello sent his good wishes to all the players and technical staff leaving the club. “We thank you for your commitment and service throughout the season,” he added.  

“Despite a disappointing end to the PSL season, Gallants remain optimistic about the future. Regardless of the league we compete in, we retain our passion for football and our drive to win.

“Our fans have supported us through the ups and downs experienced, and we would like to thank all our supporters for their loyalty and belief that Bahlabane ba Ntwa will rise again.”.”
