MBABANE – South Africa’s Kaizer Chiefs and Eswatini legend Absalom ‘Scara’ Thindwa and his foundation’s partners KFC Eswatini, are giving an early Christmas to selected charities.

Thindwa is in the country to join the renowned fried chicken outlet, after they joined hands with the Scara Thindwa Foundation, that has also supported schools development soccer until COVID-19 came and halted the project over two years ago. “We’re here as Scara Foundation because our partners, KFC is distributing food parcels to some chosen charities around the country,” Thindwa said. He said they covered some care points in Lobamba, Malkerns and Mbabane, even though he would not have their names immediately. “We’re now at Ngwenya for another donation with KFC then tomorrow (today) we’ll go to Pigg’s Peak before hitting Nhlangano on the third day,” he said.

He explained that as a foundation they were proud to be associated with KFC and to be involved in this social responsibility programme. Thindwa, a former Amakhosi striker recruited from Bulembu Young Aces, was personally picked by the Glamour Boys owner Kaizer Motaung from here to Johannesburg. Thindwa also played and coached the national team Sihlangu and also had a stint with Orlando Pirates before he became a Kaizer Chiefs legend. He was known for unleashing fierce shots with his right foot and he was born in 1960 on January 6. He joined Amakhosi in 1985.

Other names who followed in his footsteps to the Glamour Boys are the late Ronnie Dube from Denver Sundowns, Shongwe cousins William ‘Cool Cat’ Shongwe (goalkeeper from Manzini Wanderers) and Abel ‘Chacklas’ Shongwe (Mbabane Highlanders) as well as Sibusiso ‘Spoko’ Dlamini (Royal Leopard).
