Mayambela struggled to attract a club after his contract with Pirates was not renewed, and Aces gave him a chance to reignite his career at the beginning of the season

Mpumalanga Black Aces have confirmed that they have parted ways with their two talented midfielders in Mark Mayambela and Mkhanyiseli Siwahla.

Aces’ Media Liaison Gordon Masondo confirmed the news to Goal, saying that the two players’ contracts were terminated after it was discovered that they didn’t abide to one of the club rules.  

“The only news in the team right now is that of Mark Mayambela and Mkhanyiseli Siwahla who were both released by the club today [Thursday],” Masondo told Goal.

“They refused to appear before the club DC for doing something that the management didn’t like, and their contracts were terminated immediately,” he said.

Interestingly enough, MP Black Aces took the decision to show Mayambela and Siwahla the exit without the knowledge of the players’ representatives.

“The issue was between the players concerned and not the agents. I don’t even know who their agents are, but I can assure you that both players were fine with leaving the club,” added Masondo.

Mayambela and Siwahla reportedly attended one of the training sessions under the influence of alcohol, and therefore refused to undergo alcohol tests to prove their innocence.  

Mayambela was signed after his contract with Pirates came to an end, while Siwahla joined from the relegated Chippa United at the beginning of the current season.
