As it was reported by FARPost three days ago, Sekhukhune United have officially confirmed the appointment of Lehlohonolo Seema as the club’s new head coach.

This comes after Seema resigned as Polokwane City coach, as his relationship with the Rise and Shine got sour. 

The ex-Chippa United mentor will begin his coaching duties at Sekhukhune effective immediately. 

Seema comes in highly recommended given his extensive experience of the beautiful. He also coached the now-defunct Bloemfontein Celtic together with John Maduka.


With Sekhukhune having swiftly secured the services of coach Seema, the new man in charge expressed gratitude to the club’s hierarchy. Seema stated that he can’t wait to guide the side to the promised land.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the chairman, Mr. Simon Malatji for having afforded me an opportunity to lead the team,” said Seema. 

“I’m most appreciative of how the negotiations between my management team and the club were handled. They were handled in a respectable and candid manner. 

“There is obviously a lot ahead of us and therefore I have to hit the ground running. 

Seema continued: “I don’t wish to make any promises except to offer my work ethic and dedication to the Club and its supporters.”

The new coach has a mammoth task ahead in the November and December period, as the club will be gunning for positive results in both League and CAF Confederation Cup matches. 

Meanwhile, caretaker coach MacDonald Makhubedu will return to his position as assistant coach. 

Sekhukhune also confirmed that they have roped in Nascent Nkwashu, who will serve as goalkeeper coach.
