MBABANE – Former Mbabane Highlanders and Moneni Pirates coach Ernest Mavuso has found a new home at Premier League returnees Mhlume Peacemakers.

The outfit, who are back to ‘mingle with the big boys’ after over a decade in the ‘wilderness’, will begin their new journey in the Premier League under the tutelage of Mavuso, who was with the Moneni ‘Buccaneers’ in the past season.

Mavuso was an interested spectator when his new team played a series of practice matches involving Sihlangu at Nsukuwansuku Stadium in Mhlume last Sunday. He issued instructions from the stands and mingled with the team at some point.

Finer details of the engagement could not be ascertained, but some team officials, on condition of anonymity, had confirmed the coming on board of Mavuso. Efforts to get comments from team Chairman Sibusiso ‘Scorpion’ Nxumalo were fruitless, as his phone repeatedly rang unanswered.

Nxumalo had told the supporters in a meeting at Hambanathi Hall in Mhlume last Saturday that the team gaffer would be announced on Monday (yesterday).
Meanwhile, Peacemakers played two practice matches at Mhlume two days ago. They beat Manzini Sea Birds by 3-2 before giving away a 2-0 lead to lose by the same score line against Sihlangu. On the day, Bongani ‘Rio’ Nxumalo and senior player Sifiso Dlamini were in charge. The latter used to play for Mbabane Highlanders and Bad Boys. Nxumalo, on the other hand, is a younger brother to ‘Scorpion.’ He was in charge when the team won promotion to the Super League in the past season.
Peacemakers are in top flight football after acquiring Matsapha United status.
