EZULWINI – It was a super night. This is after Super ladies won three individual awards during the Eswatini National Basketball League awards at MTN Headquarters on Thursday.

Besides successfully defending the National Women League title, Super ladies managed to scoop three awards in best coach category in the NWL, Regular Most Valuable Player (MVP) and finals MVP. 

The award to the best coach went to Andile Thwala while the finals MVP award was snatched by Makhosazana Dlamini with Simphiwe Thwala taking home the regular MVP gong.

Speaking after receiving the best coach award, Thwala said he would have not won the award if it were not for her players.


Finals MVP Dlamini said it was not easy to defend the title because the teams had upped their games. She said she was excited about her achievement and would attribute it to the whole team. Meanwhile, regular MVP Simphiwe attributed her achievement to coach Andile.
“I started basketball in 2018 and look at me now; I have just won this award. I want to thank Coach Andile Thwala for pushing me when I did not believe in myself. I had to train hard and I started enjoying this sport,” she said.


Superstars, on the other hand, were the winners of the Elite Men’s League and had to thank their ace player Ephraim Kambala who won both the finals MVP and regular MVP. Speaking after the prize giving, Kambala said there was nothing which beat hardwork.

“I owe these awards to my teammates, parents and coaching panel. I would have not done it without them and of course hard work also pays,” he said.
The best coach award in the EML went to Mbabane Jazz’s Wandile Lokotfwako. Winning the best coach in the MPL was Mbabane Knicks’ Bheki Magongo who inspired his side to promotion to the EML. Also getting promotion was RSSC Tridents.

Shining in the Men’s Promotional League was RSSC Tridents’ Mattew Bothma who scooped the regular MVP award.
