Thanda Royal Zulu
In the second half of 2013, Bhengu joined Thanda Royal Zulu and started reviving his career. Bhengu finished the 2014–15 season as the top-scorer, scoring 22 goals and setting a new National First Division record.
After winning the National First Division's golden boot award, Bhengu turned down offers from Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns to join SuperSport United. Bhengu's first season with SuperSport United was not successful, managing only four substitute appearances, prompting him to request a loan move to gain game-time.
