MBABANE – Manzini Wanderers will have a new captain in Sandile Mhlanga to steer the club to better shores in the upcoming 2022/23 season.

Mhlanga who joined the hub giants three seasons back takes the arm belt from experienced defender Mthunzi ‘Chippa’ Motsa, who led the side to the sixth position in the past season with 40 points. The maroon and white side’s Chairman Mlungisi ‘Mluka’ Ndzinisa said the team was big and needed more people to lead it to a better position next season. “We have a new captain for the coming season and that is Sandile Mhlanga who has been part of the Manzini Wanderers family for the past three seasons,” Ndzinisa said. He was, however; quick to reveal that former captain, Motsa had not been demoted but was still part of the team’s captains.


“We don’t use the word demoted in this club, Chippa is still part of the team as his experience will be needed here and there during the season,” he said. Meanwhile, the chairman said they were ready to defend the 2022 Bible Society Cup and the journey would begin with cruising through their sworn rivals, Moneni Pirates as they had been pitted against each other. “This cup is ours and we will easily walk over Pirates. They know that we are en route to the finals where we will defeat the team that we will meet and be crowned the champs again,” he said. Liweseli will play the ‘Sea Robbers’ of Moneni in the first semifinals of this year’s edition at 9am, while Mbabane Highlanders will play Denver Sundowns in the second semifinals at 11am.  The final will be played at 2:30pm at Mavuso Sports Centre next Saturday. Supporters are expected to bring a hard copy of the SiSwati Bible, whether old or new to gain entry into the stadium.
