MBABANE – Resigned Premier League of Swaziland (PLS) Chairman Mark Carmichael is set to be replaced before the end of the day.

Earlier reports had suggested that Sea Birds’ Sicelo Mkhonta would come on board, but executive members, in an interview late yesterday, insisted that the appointment of the acting chairman would be officially made today.

According to Article 37.1 of the elite football office’s constitution, a Chairman of the PLS is elected by the General Assembly. However, the executive will bring someone on board, as there cannot be a vacuum following the unforeseen circumstances. The selected candidate will be in charge until the next annual general meeting in about 28 days.

“We will have a meeting tomorrow after lunch as an Executive to officially appoint a chairman, who will be in charge until the AGM,” said senior executive member Peter ‘Touch’ Magagula.

Mkhonta also confirmed the latest developments, insisting that no appointment had been made for now.
Meanwhile, Carmichael stepped down on Friday under unclear circumstances. He is expected to be part of today’s deliberations after declaring that he is still an executive member.

The post has been vacant since the brutal killing of Victor Gamedze on January 14 by an unknown man. Carmichael had been elected by the Governors to keep the fires burning from March 8. They used Article 36.8 of the PLS Constitution, which calls for an executive member to come on board if the chairman was prevented from performing his duties.
