NO WOMAN LEADER FOR WFA

MBABANE – After the Football Association’s General Assembly last month, it looked certain that a woman leader would take charge of the Women’s Football Association as chairman.

However, things did not work out despite the WFA membership’s determination to at least have a woman chairman. The WFA held its elections yesterday at Sigwaca House during the General Assembly and Sonnyboy Mabuza retained his chairmanship.
Mabuza retained the position after getting five votes out of nine voting members, beating his woman contender Winile Gwebu by just one vote. Worth mentioning is that of the 10 members that were at the meeting, one abstained and did not vote at all, which saw members complain about it as they had thought it was all systems go for Gwebu among all of them. Taking the Vice-Chairman post was Mfanzile Vilakati who also beat Cindy Dludlu to it after getting five to her four votes. Aaron Mavimbela and Bonginkhosi Mhlanga were elected unopposed in the secretary and vice-secretary positions respectively.

The same happened for the treasurer and members positions. For treasurer, Cindy Dludlu retained the position after the two other candidates Mfanzile Vilakati and Wandile Sibiya withdrew. One Tom Ndzinisa and Bongisipho Mamba were also elected unopposed to complete the new Executive Committee.
In his brief remarks, Mabuza thanked the members for trusting him once again as their leader for the next four years and promised to continue working towards development of the sport. He said it was high time they prioritised on getting sponsors for WFA and also ensuring the teams can sustain themselves.
