Mahlatsi had penned a deal with Chiefs from Soweto rivals Moroka Swallows in 2022. However, he struggled to force his way into the starting line-up in his first season under then-head coach Arthur Zwane. 

His progress at Naturena was also hampered by injuries, making it difficult to feature regularity. And in the new season, Mahlatsi was yet to play for Chiefs under Ntseki. 

The ex-South Africa junior international only managed to make seven appearances in Chiefs colours.
