Chippa United have bolstered their squad with the signing of former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Thokozani Sekotlong.
The Port Elizabeth-based side took to their social media platforms on Friday afternoon to unveil the well-travelled marksman as their player alongside Thabiso Lebitso.
Lebitso was part of the 2019 Nedbank Cup Ke Yona, and he would hope to make the most of this opportunity the same way players such as Aubrey Modiba among others did in recent years.
Chippa didn't disclose details around the duo's contract but they could be available for selection against Polokwane City this weekend.

The two signings come a week after coach Norman Mapeza confirmed he would bring in at least two local strikers in the January transfer window.
Sekotlong and Lebitso are seen as replacements for Rhulani Manzini and Lerato Manzini, who were both released at the end of 2019.
Despite not playing competitive football in the last six months, Sekotlong knows a lot will be expected from him as a senior player.
He played for no less than six top-flight clubs in his 10-year professional career, including AmaTuks, Maritzburg United, Free State Stars and Black Leopards.
Sekotlong has played 96 matches across all competitions for various PSL clubs and scored 16 goals.
