Amongst those who have been shown the door at Bakgaga is Zimbabwean goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze, who is famous for pulling time-wasting antics whenever Baroka are in the lead in a match.

The Zimbabwean shot-stopper remained Bakgakga’s first-choice keeper for the following season. He finally lost his number one spot to Oscarine Masuluke last season.

Other players who have been released by Baroka are: Richard Mbulu, Vusi Sibiya, Lungelo Nguse, Mohau Bowali, Athenkosi Dlala, Augustine Mahlonoko, Nhlanhla Mgaga and Thami Masiya.
