In their Soweto derby match in Dobsonville on Sunday, Chiefs were in a destructive mood, crushing struggling Swallows 3-1.
Amakhosi took the lead in the 42nd minute when Keagan Dolly scored his sixth league goal, which was quickly doubled by Khama Billiat.
In the second half, the Chiefs came out fighting, and Billiat's goal in the 53rd minute put the game out of reach.
Swallows captain Lebogang Mokoena grabbed one back in the 64th minute, but the team never appeared to be on the verge of producing a remarkable comeback.
Chiefs moved into second place in the DStv Premiership rankings, eight points behind Mamelodi Sundowns and one point ahead of Royal AM, thanks to the win. They've played one game more than the other two teams.
As they dropped at the foot of the table, Swallows had a day to forget.
The club fired its whole coaching staff in response to a spate of bad results dating back to last season, including two wins in 30 games.
Many expected that this would be the start of something spectacular for the Glamour Boys on social media, and urged the team to keep up the momentum.
Amakhosi was praised by Shivambu for separating "wheat from chaff."
He pushed, "Now let's keep the consistency."
