Phakaaathi tried to get a confirmation from both Mapeza and club COO Lukhanyo Mzizi, but those efforts proved fruitless.

Mapeza’s reported resignation comes just days after he led Chippa to a 1-0 win over AmaZulu to move the club away from the relegation zone.

Assistant coach Mbuyiselo Sambu is reportedly going to take over from Mapeza on an interim basis.
