Eric Tinkler came into the clash looking to secure his first win as the Chilli Boys after suffering defeat to SuperSport United in their last outing.
Baroka, meanwhile, were also pushing three points after they were held to a 1-1 draw by newly-promoted Highlands Park in the last round of matches.
Chances were few and far between in the opening 30 minutes of the game, which was no surprise for a side like Chippa who have struggled to hit the back of the net this season.
The Limpopo out made two changes before the break, as Talent Chawaphiwa and Patjie made way for Onkabetse Malgantai and Richard Matloga.
With Chippa struggling to break down the visitors, Tinkler introduced new signing Rhulani Manzini for Kurt Lenthies in the 67th minute.
Both sides pushed for a breakthrough goal as the half went on, but they were unable to carve out any serious openings.
However, the Chilli Boys managed to get the winning goal late on thanks to a strike from Mbenyane to seal their first win of the season.
The Chilli Boys will now face Golden Arrows in their next encounter, while Baroka host Orlando Pirates next weekend.
