As reported by Sports Brief, the Amakhosi have gone seven years without any silverware, the longest the "cup kings of South Africa" have not lifted a trophy since inception in 2015. The side is also experiencing an unsatisfactory start to the new season under the tutelage of Arthur Zwane, lying above the relegation zone on the DStv Premiership league table in 14th place.

Addressing this, an uncompromising Herman Gibbs wrote on IOL:

"For many years, Chiefs earned the title of aristocrats of South African football, but its relevance pales into insignificance these days because the club has not won a trophy in seven years. Arthur Zwane was handed the coach’s position by the Chiefs hierarchy, which includes team manager Bobby Motaung and sporting director Kaizer Motaung Jr."
