Tjale, who is now working on consultation basis, has served the club for many years.
"He has served Swallows from all levels of administration - from coordinating supporters, to becoming the club's director before he became the club's employee. But these days he works as a consultant," Swallows General Manager Sipho Xulu told the club's official website.
He added: "We as the club appreciate his service and we are really honoured to have a man like him at Swallows. We have learned a lot from him and we hope that he will continue to share his expertise with us for many years to come.
"Moroka Swallows would like to wish 'Ntate' Tjale good health and may he continue to age gracefully. We would also like to wish him many more years as we still value him a lot and we would love to keep him around."
'Ukhule uze ukhokhobe 'Ntate' Tjale. Happy Birthday!"
