Chiefs secrured the title in emphatic fashion when they cruised to a 4-1 victory over Polokwane City at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday night.
George Lebese, Bernard Parker and Matthew Rusike all got on the scoresheet as Amakhosi claimed the championship after a dominant season.
Sundowns, last season’s champions, drew 1-1 with Platinum Stars at the Lucas Moripe Stadium to concede the title.
"Congratulations to Kaizer Chiefs, I like Stuart (Baxter), he's a good competitor, he's a gentlemen, we won it last year and they won it this year," Mosimane told Soccer Laduma after the game.
Mosimane said there were no hard feelings towards Chiefs and insisted his side will hit back strong next season.
Mosimane said four draws in a row - against Polokwane City, Mpumalanga Black Aces, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates - proved costly for his side.
