Sithole has been training with Chippa for the past week and has made enough of an impression to win a contract, three years since he last had a taste of Premiership football at Maritzburg United.
Chippa general manager Wandisile Mbenguzana confirms the signing of the 31-year-old, who remains as exciting and effective as he was in his teenage years at Kaizer Chiefs.
Sithole has spent the last three years at African Warriors, where he made a huge impression, going on to captain the team in his last year there.
A disciplined footballer, Sithole made his break in professional football at Chiefs during the 2000/01 season before going on to play for Black Leopards, Golden Arrows and Maritzburg United.
He was also capped at both Under-20 and Under-23 level for the national team.
