Kwinika becomes Amakhosi’s SECOND signing ahead of the new season after Siyethemba Sithebe of AmaZulu.

Sithebe signed a pre-contract with Chiefs in January but he couldn’t move to Naturena after AmaZulu refused to enter into negotiations for his early release.

He was subsequently frozen out by AmaZulu who felt disrespected that the midfielder chose to move to Chiefs instead of renewing his contract with them.

Nonetheless, Sithebe will finally get to make his move to Chiefs at the end of June, and unite with his new teammates, including Kwinika.
