Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

MBABANE – Former Eswatini Football Association (EFA) Chief Executive Officer, Kenneth Makhanya has joined the race for the vacant CEO position at the Premier League of Eswatini (PLE).

An informed source confided in the Times Sports Desk that Makhanya is one of the 15 applicants who want to fill one of the most challenging jobs in the football leadership set-up. Former whistle-man Simanga Nhleko was the last man to hold the position and was shown the exit door before the end of his two-year contract. Nhleko successfully sued the PLE in court and was compensated over E600 000.

“Kenneth Makhanya has applied for the post and given his experience having worked as EFA CEO and also at South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns, he is favourite for the position if the PLE knows what it wants,” our source at the PLE Board of Governors said. Reached for comment, the former South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns General Manager confirmed he had applied for the PLE CEO job. “Yes, I have applied for the PLE CEO post. That’s all I can say,’’ Makhanya said in a short-as-a-sneeze response yesterday. PLE Chief Operations Officer Pat Vilakati could not be reached for comment last night. The PLE advertised the two positions a week ago, being the CEO and accountant. The PLE Accountant, Nhlanhla Dlamini, is expected to leave the organisation at the end of the month after serving his notice.
