George Lebese, Bernard Parker and Rusike all got on the score-sheet as AmaKhosi claimed the trophy after a dominant season with a 4-1 victory.
Chiefs started with intent and almost got ahead as early as the fifth minute, when George Lebese missed the target with a headed effort. But Lebese was ready for the next chance that came his way, latching onto Willard Katsande's through-ball to open the scoring on 27 minutes.
It got even better for Amakhosi just after the half-hour mark when Bernard Parker was let in for their second to put one finger on the trophy despite a late effort from Polokwane to get back in the game before the break.
Chiefs picked up where they left off in the second half, making it 3-0 when Siphiwe Tshabalala threaded the ball through for Rusike to get his first of the night.
The celebrations had started early before Rendani Ndou struck for City just a couple of minutes later to keep fans at the edge of their seats.
However, Rusike then scored his second to restore the home side's three-goal cushion.
"It's an amazing result today, it's all about results and closing up the League and there are still a couple of games to go," Rusike said when receiving his Man of the Match award as quoted by KickOff.
"We're happy with it, I'm happy with my performance but it's a team thing you know and you can see the jubilation here [from the fans who invaded the pitch to celebrate] so thanks to all of them for coming out today."
