Nthethe was released by Chippa United during the current transfer period along with five other players who were deemed surplus to the club’s requirements.

According to the Daily Sun, the former Mamelodi Sundowns defender has agreed to join Bakgaga and is set to report for duty on Wednesday.

“Nthethe’s experience speaks volumes. That’s why the chairman didn’t waste time to bring him on board when he found out that he is available,” an unnamed source told the newspaper.

“The youngsters always panic under pressure and having Nthethe in the team will help them stay calm. I have no doubt that he will bring the much needed stability in the team.”
