MBABANE – Lucky Honour Janza!

Indeed, former Mbabane Swallows Zambian-born coach Honour Janza should consider himself a very lucky fellow after escaping a possible E72 000 penalty following his request to be released from his two-year contract.

The Times Sports Desk has reliably gathered that Swallows President Archbishop Bheki Lukhele waived the clause in the contract agreement to allow the Zambian mentor to have his wish of flying out of the ‘Birds’ nest.

The clause under the contract agreement, Article 5.1 Termination states that: “In case of breach of contract, the party responsible for the breach of the contract shall be liable to pay a sum to the equivalent of 4 (four) months this may include performance,”


Janza was earning a salary of E18 000 per month which translates to E72 000 in four months.

During the press briefing last Thursday, Archbishop Lukhele was at pains stressing that the contract had been cancelled by mutual consent.

“The coach, Janza, through a letter that has been received by my office, requested that I release him from his contract with Mbabane Swallows due to the COVID-19 situation and I graciously agreed to release Janza. For the record, I state that the ending of the contract is mutual and it is as a result of the coach’s request,” Lukhele told members of the media. 

Janza declined to comment on the issue when contacted yesterday. Swallows Marketing and Communications Manager Mancoba Mabuza reiterated the club president’s words that the contract was terminated by mutual consent.

“You may have a contractual obligation to give your employer three months notice but at times you ask that you be released immediately. The employer can decide not to demand payment or something,” Mabuza said.
