PAT MAHLALELA IS WANDERERS CEO

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

MBABANE – Two years ago, hub giants Manzini Wanderers supporters successfully axed their leader, including Pat Mahlalela, who was General Manager.
This was in 2015 when the club also reached the SwaziBank Cup final but lost to rivals Moneni Pirates.


However, the directors of the team yesterday named their new Management Committee and Mahlalela was among those listed.
He takes the position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Forget that when he and then director Mduduzi ‘Tsotsi’ Mabila were in charge back then, supporters revolted and the final meeting where they stepped down thereafter got so heated up it nearly turned nasty.
Interestingly, even to date, supporters are up in arms with current directors.


One of the club’s directors, Sandile ‘Chief’ Dlamini, confirmed the latest news through a press statement.
Leading the MC is Pat Gamedze who retains his post as General Manager, while former player Berger ‘Hotline’ Nxumalo is his assistant.
Nyanga ‘Crooks’ Hlophe comes in as manager as opposed to coach and will be assisted by Bongani ‘Cruiser’ Dlamini.


Chief Security is Ncamiso Dlamini while a certain Mbuyisa comes in as team doctor.
“I’m not aware of the news. What I know is that we were still in talks with the directors so I’m surprised if it’s already in the media when there’s been no communication of the appointment with me,” Mahlalela said when reached for comment on his return to the maroon and white outfit.


Nonetheless, he said he was always a Wanderers person and if the club feels he has a task to fulfil for it, he was always ready to serve.
“It’s quite hard to say much under the circumstances but if I’m given any task, I will always take it. For now, I can’t go on talking until I hear from the directors who I thought were still discussing the matter,” he said.
Mahlalela would also not comment on his exit at the club, instead he insisted on being officially informed and that if anything, he was aware of the position but at negotiation level.
