MBABANE – Supporters of the big three elite league teams paid Young Buffaloes supporter Space Mabuza a visit on Sunday.

The Buffaloes supporter has been ill since December last year and the sickness has led to him using the aid of a walking stick. “I am walking with the aid of a walking stick because I have cramps on my feet, hands as well as around the waist. This sickness started last year and I have tried everything in my power to cure this, but in vain,” Mabuza said. He said he was happy to see the supporters in their numbers at his home on Sunday. “I was overcome by emotions when I saw them here. We prayed and sang together as supporters and I felt blessed, I am now spiritually healed,” he said.

Mabuza went on to say that he failed to thank the supporters on the day they came to check on him because he struggled to talk. “I thanked them today (yesterday) because I failed to contain myself as I felt tears rolling down my face. They added me on the supporters’ WhatsApp group and that is where I passed my sincere gratitude to them,” he elaborated. Mabuza further urged them to continue supporting each other in times of happiness and sorrow. “May the Almighty bless them all and this should not end here with me, but should extend to other supporters who might be in the same situation as I am in,” he said.

According to the supporters’ spokesperson, Sizwe Gumbi, they heard about Mabuza’s plight and decided to pay him a visit. He also said they brought him food and fruits and left him with money. This is not the first time the big three supporters showed such support as they recently visited Manzini Wanderers Super fan Sidumo Shongwe some few months ago. Shongwe was allegedly shot by the police in the leg while at Mvakwelitje as they were assisting a truck driver whose truck had plunged into a drain. This was during the unrest that took place in the country some weeks back. It is worth noting that Ngwenya was also present when the supporters visited Mabuza.
