MBABANE – Are officials at Mbabane Highlanders feeling the pressure ahead of tomorrow’s supporters’ mass meeting?

Seemingly, some are unsettled and have decided to step down before the meeting which our sister publication, the Times of Eswatini daily sports reported yesterday could see a major shakeup in management. The team’s Managing Director (MD) Chief Ally Kgomongwe sanctioned the meeting through their National Supporters Committee (NSC) for tomorrow in Ezulwini at CODEC. The meeting comes after the last Sunday’s mayhem which saw the team’s supporters invading the Mavuso Sports Centre pitch, baying for the referee’s (Mbongeni Shongwe) blood.

This is after Shongwe allowed a goal by Manzini Sea Birds’ Sandumuzi Zwane, which the player later admitted he scored via his hand. Highlanders lost 2-1, but what was witnessed after the game may attract over E200 000 in fines for the capital city side. Amidst all this, the club’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mandla Madonsela posted on his Facebook account that his journey had ended as a PRO of the team. “I feel it’s high time someone else takes the baton. This big brand isn’t a Madonsela (family) thing so, times like this do come. It’s been such a great pleasure working for this big brand, through bad and good times, but above it all, we all wanted what’s best for Mbabane Highlanders Football Club,” Madonsela said.


He was also questioned if he had written a formal letter resigning from the position. “I personally feel like there’s no need to write something down, as from the onset it was a gentleman’s agreement to serve as PRO, so even now, I’ll just step down and go back to being a supporter of this darling brand,” he said. Efforts to get a comment from Kgomongwe proved futile as he could not be reached immediately. He is expected to address the Highlanders masses tomorrow in the meeting. Meanwhile, by 8pm yesterday there was speculation that the team’s Chief Executive Officer Clement Dlamini, had also allegedly left his position but this could not be confirmed immediately.
