MBABANE – Capital city giants’ Mbabane Swallows are set to fortify their fortress by roping in former player LIoyd ‘Magic Feet’ Maziya as Chairman of the Management Committee (MC).

In fact, sources at the team disclosed that the team has also earmarked current Ingwenyama Cup Management Committee treasurer, Masotja Vilakati for the same treasurer position in the team.

Vilakati is also a former treasurer – one of the longest serving – of the Premier League of Swaziland.  The duo has been recommended by Princess Lungile who the club confirmed as the new leader following the demise of her husband Victor ‘Maradona’ Gamedze about three weeks ago.

“They have received the blessings of the Gamedze family and are expected to be unveiled sometime next week,” the source said of Maziya and Vilakati’s appointment.

Princess Lungile, though confirming the visit by the team, referred comments on the club’s management issues to either General Manager Sandile ‘Beyond 2000’ Zwane or Maziya. 

Zwane was reluctant to comment on the additions in the club MC, instead, opting to confirm that Princess Lungile was now officially in charge of the club, taking over from her deceased husband.

“We met Make Gamedze and we can only confirm that she has agreed to run the club going forward. However, we are still going to report to the other stakeholders of the club before making any announcements. For now, nothing has changed regarding the management,” Zwane said.

He insisted that it was the club’s culture not to rush to the media for announcements without having notified all stakeholders about what was going on. The club leaves today for Maseru where they will face Bantu F.C on Sunday in the first leg of the CAF Champions League tie. The second leg will be at Somhlolo National Stadium next weekend.
