Despite the fact that he was not unveiled by Irvin Khoza with Orlando Pirates' new signings, KickOff.com can confirm that Thabo Rakhale is officially a Buccaneer, and has already started training with the club.
Khoza unveiled six players at a press conference in Johannesburg on Monday: Onyekachi Okonkwo, Ayanda Gcaba, Aubrey Ngoma, Manti Moholo, Khethokwakhe Masuku and Patrick Phungwayo.
But Sivutsa Stars boss Derick Khoza confirms to KickOff.com that Rakhale has also been cleared and is now official property of Orlando Pirates.
Rakhele has signed a three-year contract with Pirates.
Meanwhile, Okonkwo is yet to report for preseason training with the Soweto Giants.
According to club spokesperson Mickey Modisane, Okonkwo has gone back overseas to sort out personal matters and should be back in the country next week to resume his career with Pirates.
