Well, my copy of Teach Yourself Xhosa states that, in the written version, the letter 'c' is used to indicate a non-aspirated dental click, as in "caca" = be clear. If the click is aspirated, then it is written 'ch', as in "chacha" = recuperate. In other words, in Xhosa orthography, 'ch' is an aspirated dental click, not [tS].
