This may come as a shock as, although they were initially linked to Chivaviro alongside arch-rivals Orlando Pirates, links to both Soweto giants looked to have died down. The player’s agent had even come out saying that there were no calls from any local clubs and if Chiefs called then he would listen, despite wanting to take the player overseas as a first option.

Now it seemed like that wouldn’t materialise when Chivaviro was all of a sudden thought to be closing in on a move beyond the borders, to Yanga SC of Tanzania. It was said that the player was attracted to the prospect of playing CAF Champions League.

Then earlier this week, Chiefs seemed to make a surprise late surge for Chivaviro as this publication reported that Amakhosi had made contact with the player’s agent, in an effort to bring the player to the club. It now seems, however, that they are set to miss out on the player if the latest report from Unplayable is anything to go by.

“𝗗𝗘𝗔𝗟 𝗗𝗢𝗡𝗘 #UNPLAYABLE sources confirm that Ranga Chivaviro has signed with Richards Bay.The other stuff you hear is just rumours… Yanga, Chiefs, etc, that’s rumours. He signed with Richards Bay long ago. The only issue now is that Marumo Gallants claim to have exercised a 1-year option in his contract, but let’s wait and see about that one,” they wrote on their Facebook page.
