A heartbroken Lehlohonolo Seema has opened up about his abrupt exit from Chippa United, insisting that Siviwe Mpengesi will ‘regret the way he’s treating people’.
Seema was recalled for his second stint at Chippa to help the team fight relegation in the 2022/23 DStv Premiership season.
Despite helping the team finish 14th on the league table and survive the axe, reports emerged on Wednesday morning that Seema has been shown the exit door.
The Lesotho-born coach returned to Chippa in April. But hardly three months at the helm, the trigger-happy Siviwe Mpengesi has fired his coach again.
Amongst a handful of coaches that have been in charge of the Chilli Boys in the just-ended season is Daine Klate, Morgan Mammila, Kurt Lentjies, Siyabulela Gwambi and now recently Seema.
Furthermore, this publication reached out to the discarded coach, Seema, who expressed his disappointment in the club’s chairman.

“It’s very true that I’m no longer with Chippa United, and you know how the chairman [Siviwe Mpengesi] works,” Seema told FARPost.
“Very disappointed. But God will open another opportunity for me. One day the chairman will regret the way he’s treating people.
Seema further revealed what were the reasons provided too him upon being fired at the Gqeberha-based outfit.
“So I was told that the club has other plans. I hear the rumours saying that Morgan Mammila is coming back to the club.
“But it’s not a problem; I’m fine, and I will never go back. I helped where I can,” he added.
In addition, several coaches have been linked to take up the vacant Chippa job. Administrator-cum-coach Mammila is the hot favourite to land the job.
Meanwhile, Chippa won seven games, drawing nine and losing 14 times in 30 games in the 2022/23 season.
