“Kamohelo has given his best at all times while a Chiefs player and, following consultation with his representatives, we decided to release him with a view to him finding more regular game-time somewhere else,” Motaung Jr explained. 

“We appreciate his efforts and wish him all of the best for the future.”

The former SuperSport United player is now a free agent.
