MANZINI – They came, played and entertained the over 500 football lovers who came to witness the Prince Majaha Foundation Charity Cup.


This was during the second edition of the tournament that was held at Manzini Club on Saturday, which attracted former Premier League players.


Some of players were the duo of former Green Mamba’s Maxwell ‘Dunga’ Zikalala and Mphushana Manyatsi. Others were Manzini Wanderers former defender Jerry ‘Mbazo’ Gamedze and Young Buffaloes’ Stan Khumalo, to mention a few.
The tournament saw 10 teams battling it out for charity. It was first played in a round-robin system where the top eight teams qualified for the quarter-finals.


In the last eight stage, it was played in a knock-out format.
The last eight finalists were Maxi, Ngwane Park, Uniswa, Shali, Sphahluka and Autozone. Others were the Swaziland National Provident Fund and Auto Zone Value.


Interviewed after the games, Manyatsi said he participated because he was keeping a healthy lifestyle.


“I retired from football but that does not mean I should stop exercising. I participate in social tournaments to ensure that I am fit and healthy. I also partake in such tournaments because I want to network and socialise with other elite former stars,” Manyatsi said.


Manzini Wanderers former defender Gamedze said playing in charity cups was a social responsibility because it meant giving back to the community.
