The former Mamelodi Sundowns striker scored the only goal of the game, which helped Chippa in their 1-0 win over Moroka Swallows on Wednesday.
The Chilli Boys have accumulated 28 points in the Absa Premiership, with five games remaining for the side in the 2014/15 season.
According to the Port Elizabeth-based club, Mpengesi praised Manqele during his address of the players in the changing room at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, after their victory against the Dube Birds.
“Today you’ve made me the happiest man and I was very pleased with your performance against Swallows.
“Well done gentlemen, especially the goal scorer Edward Manqele for proving his critics wrong, because people were criticising the club for signing Manqele from Mamelodi Sundowns, saying he is too fat, out of form and unfit for professional football, but you stood tall and scored for us,” Mpengesi is quoted saying on the club’s official website.
Chippa’s next game will be against Bidvest Wits in Johannesburg on Saturday, April 18.
