Chiefs beat Highlands 3-0 in a midweek game to extend their lead at the top to six points with Mamelodi Sundowns in second place.
Da Gama said he would rather see Chiefs lift the title in May and not Sundowns.
“I always say, if Kaizer Chiefs or Orlando Pirates win the league,” Da Gama told the media.
“Sundowns have won it a number of times now, but if one of the Soweto giants do it, it just augurs well for South African football.
“The amount of work that goes into this brand of Kaizer Chiefs is just unbelievable, it’s mindboggling.
“So, I definitely think it would be good for South African football [if Chiefs win the league this season],” he added.
“I think I can say, hopefully, they have a clean bill of health and the consistency continues.
“I believe the Kaizer Chiefs players have got the mentality to go all the way. And we wish them all the best.”
