MBABANE – A knee injury has forced golden girl, Erikah Seyama, to be ruled out of the Africa Games in Rabat, Morocco.

Seyama was due to be part of the five athletes who would be representing the country in the games, having qualified in high jump.
Her absence in the team was confirmed by Eswatini Sport and Recreation Council (ESRC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Darius Dlomo during the team’s farewell yesterday at EOCGA offices, Mbabane.

“Erikah was supposed to be part of this team but due to a recent injury, she will not be going to Morocco,” he said.
Having conquered Africa in high jump during the CAA Africa Senior Championships held in Nigeria last year, August, Seyama was due to be among the most feared during the competitions.

Seyama said she got injured while training. “I have a knee injury that keeps me out of the games. I will now have enough time to recover for the World Championships. Now my focus is to work on healing and getting back to training. These things do happen and I have taken it on a positive note,” she said.


Sprinter Sibusiso ‘Swazi Bolt’ Matsenjwa missed out on the farewell function as he was on his way back to the country from Angola where he was competing in the SARPCCO Games where he won a gold medal in 100m and silver in 200m.

The team promised fireworks during the games and said they were ready for the competitions.
The squad comprises of three athletes in Sibusiso ‘Swazi Bolt’ Matsenjwa, Phumlile Ndzinisa and Andile Lusenga, while taekwondo artists are Thandukukhanya Dlamini and Wandile Maziya.
