MBABANE – An emotional Minister of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs David ‘Cruiser’ Ngcamphalala has one prayer and that is to see a grieving Mbabane Swallows winning both the Ingwenyama Cup and MTN League.

At a highly emotional event marking the 2018 CAF Champions League sponsorship by Nedbank where the financial institution announced a staggering E180 000 deal to the capital city giants, Ngcamphalala implored General Manager Sandile Zwane to ensure that the club clinches the double to fulfil the dream of slain chairman Victor ‘Maradona’ Gamedze.

“From the bottom of my heart, I wish and pray that you win the Ingwenyama Cup. I know that the league is already taken care of, and I hope Sandile will go where Gamedze used to send you because surely this will be achieved,” he said.
He urged the team to desist from changing the winning formula left by Gamedze.

“Swallows have adopted a certain style that has worked well for them. Gamedze had a way of winning games and if it is not broken don’t fix it Zwane. Please make sure that you keep the same MC until you reach the group stage, and avoid tampering with what has been Gamedze’s winning team,” he said.

He was echoed by Nedbank MD Fikile Nkosi who said the team’s fighting spirit had been inherited from Gamedze who he said was a proven hard worker both in football and in business.
Meanwhile, FA Vice President Comfort Shongwe said Swallows have made the country proud in continental competitions and that they were optimistic that they would continue to scale new heights even this year.

“I expect you to at least bring back a silver medal. I know you are capable of doing this and we would like to thank Nedbank for the kind gesture and hope that other companies will follow suit and support football,” he said.
