Both players arrive as free agents after parting ways with their respective clubs abroad. The 28-year-old left winger Dolly returns to Mzansi after playing his football in France's Ligue 1 with Montpellier since 2017, where he managed one goal in 64 appearances.
Cole, 32, is coming back home after a season with mid-table Indian Premier League club Odisha where he scored three goals and made one assist in 15 games.
The duo increase the club's new signings to nine players as the club get to make new signings after the two-year ban from FIFA for illegally registering a player in 2017.
All Chiefs' signings so far:
Brandon Peterson, Sifiso Hlanti, Phathushedzo Nange, Njabulo Ngcobo, Sibusiso Mabiliso, Kgaogelo Sekgota, Given Thibedi (back from loan), Thabani Dube, Dolly and Alexander.
Meanwhile, Amakhosi remain linked with the French-based central midfielder Bongani Zungu.
