The club’s CEO, Khumbulani Konco, has already confirmed that the club will be releasing the Zambian defender while Ritchie is on the verge of a move to Mpumalanga Black Aces.

Both players were signed last year; however the team has decided to let them go of them as they feel it’s in the interest of the two parties.
