EZULWINI – MTN Eswatini’s partnership with Khemani Cycling Club is match made in heaven.


The giant mobile company pumped in  a whopping  E400 000 towards the sixth instalment of the MTN Khemani Road Classic, which was launched last night at Mahlalekhukhwini House in Ezulwini.  For the first time, the race will be moved from Mankayane to Croydon, which is situated outside Madlengempisi.
The sponsorship remains the highest in road races in the country despite a decrease of about E40 000 as compared to the past year.


 MTN CEO Ambrose Dlamini announced the new package during a brief launch attended by guests, who were led by Ministry of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs Undersecretary Nhlanhla Motsa. He said the company was getting value out of the sponsorship.
“While MTN has its own corporate social investment (CSI) programmes, there is additional mileage derived from MTN Khemani’s CSI,” he said.
Dlamini encouraged more youngsters and women to join the race.


MTN Khemani Club Secretary Muzi Dlamini celebrated the continued partnership, as the proceeds from the race benefitted the needy.
“We’re happy to announce that 12 professional teams including three ladies teams, will take part in the race this year.
“We have teams from South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique and Uganda.


“Not only are we grateful for MTN’s continued support over the years in making MTN Khemani Classic an international event, but also to our prospective water points sponsors who ensure adequate hydration for the cyclists,” he said.


Minister of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs David ‘Cruiser’ Ngcampahalala, through representative, Motsa, said he believed the race would continue to impact as many lives as possible, as it continued to grow.
Swaziland Olympic and Commonwealth Games Association (SOCGA) CEO, Sydney Simelane was among the guests witnessing yesterday’s festivities.
