Greetings Mkhonto KaShaka, greetings, Nqolebvu Kamasizila, sanibonani Swai Swai, hello to you all beautiful Birds on this lovely Friday.
Dear Mkhonto KaShaka, as stated in my last column last week, now is the time.

This is the time. I come to you Swai Swai only 24 hours before our most important fixture this season, the clash against Botswana’s Orapa United.
You should be aware by now that the game, which has all the ingredients of a thriller, will be played at the ‘House of Pain’, our slaughterhouse Somhlolo National Stadium. The iconic venue, where all have fallen, will host the second leg clash of the Confederations Cup.

Our aim, as I have always been saying, is to at least advance and reach the group stages of this continental competition. We want to make it happen. Everyone in the team is determined to make that dream a reality. We will not allow the visitors from Botswana to spoil our party. Yes, we are looking at creating our own history. What better year to do it than now when we are 69 years old? Just next year, we will be turning 70 years, which makes this great team the oldest surviving football club in Swaziland.

It is high time we claim our stake, not just as the oldest but as the greatest. Here at this great side, we do not refer to history, no. Instead we write our own history every day. The reason is simple; at Mbabane Swallows we do not live in the past.

That is why we expect you paint Somhlolo National Stadium red/blue and white tomorrow. Please come in numbers and play your role as our 12th man on the field of play. The boys always draw inspiration from your amazing support. We do not only expect our fans to rally behind the team but the whole country, as we are now representing our beautiful kingdom. Let us be united and we will conquer, but divided we will surely fall.

It is now bigger than the game. This is now political. It is not Swallows versus Orapa but it is instead Swaziland versus Botswana. We need to do our country proud.
Entry fee is only E40.
