MBABANE – There is a hot potato on the National Football Association of Swaziland’s lap ahead of its Ordinary General Assembly on July 1.

The meeting will be held at Sibane Hotel in Ezulwini. Among the proposals to be tabled on the day, it was reliably gathered, would be a proposal from one of the members, in National Referees Association of Swaziland (NRAS), that will demand the election of an executive committee at SRFA.

SRFA is an acronym for Shiselweni Regional Football Association, an affiliate of the country’s football mother body. SRFA is still governed by a normalisation committee since the ousting of the Mashumi Shongwe-led Executive Committee in July 2016. Shongwe was sidelined following his decision to stand for elections while still NFAS vice vice president at the time.

In their proposal, the referees felt the normalisation committee had overstayed its welcome, announcing plans to demand elections within 90 days.
The referees, according to well-informed insiders, would also demand an explanation on steps taken by the NFAS in resolving the impasse between the Women Football Association (WFA) and some aggrieved teams. The said teams are challenging the current WFA executive, as they claim it is in office illegally. They want the elections, which were conducted on July 16 last year, to be declared null and void.

NRAS Chairman Sipho Kunene could only confirm that there were proposals forwarded to the NFAS for consideration, but did not want to disclose them. Secretary Simanga Nhleko was also not available for comment.
NFAS Marketing and Communications Officer Muzi Radebe said he was yet to get a correspondence from the CEO’s office on proposals for the AGM. Normally, the proposals are only open to the media during the meeting.
