MBABANE – Staunch Manzini Wanderers supporter Johannes Mchunu has taken the lead after buying shares amounting to E2 000.

The 57-year-old supporter, with disability, revealed that he was a Liweseli at heart, having started following the team at a tender age. After learning that the club was selling shares to card-carrying supporters, he decided to jump into the idea to buy four shares, costing E500 each. Mncunu said even though he was unemployed, he saw it fit  to sacrifice the little he had towards supporting the team he loved the most, saying he was hopeful that it would go a long way in meeting the needs of the hub giants. “I was born in 1965; since I was young, I have been following Wanderers. I heard of the issue of buying shares and I decided that I should grab the opportunity and be part of the history making eMaweseli,” Mchunu said.

He also urged other supporters to join hands and support the team so that it could sustain itself financially, through buying the shares. He further said that he was impressed by the team’s performance this past Saturday against rookies Nsingizini Hotspurs in an MTN Premier League game played at Mavuso Sports Centre. The game ended in a 2-all draw. “I was at Mavuso on Saturday and I was really impressed by the performance of the boys. I will be visiting them soon to give them my words of support,” he said. Chairperson of the Shares Committee Bongani ‘Bhanyaza’ Mdluli said he was out of words to describe how grateful they were by the kind gesture shown by Mncunu towards supporting the team and was now within the top 50 brackets.
“We are grateful to Mchunu. He is now entitled to make submissions during the team’s executive meetings and his voice will be heard,” Mdluli said.

He urged other supporters to take a leaf from Mchunu and be part of those to be in the history books of Manzini Wanderers by changing the landscape of football administration in the country. The top lawyer said it was now a pre-requisition for those holding top positions in the club’s structures to buy shares, failing which, they stood to lose the posts.
