MBABANE – “The players are here for assessment by top medical officers and they will be ready for the game.”

This was revealed by Mbabane Highlanders Managing Director (MD) Chief Ally Kgomongwe after the team saw its casualty ward swell with a number of regular players ahead of their MTN Premier League epic clash against defending champions Royal Leopard on Sunday, at the Mavuso Sports Centre. The South African-born businessman and politician assured the team’s supporters that the players were receiving medication from professional medical personnel in Pretoria, South Africa. “The supporters should not panic as the whole team is here for assessment and the injured players will be ready for the game against Leopard,” Kgomongwe said.

He said it was a norm for Inkunzi Emnyama to seek the assistance of South African medical practitioners to help the players when injured. He also highlighted the reason behind taking all the players there was that he wanted them to be checked, even those carrying minor knocks. He highlighted that his goal was to complete a double over the reigning champions.  “It is not like we are here to play friendly games as reported in one publication over there; the players are here to be checked by my professional friends as you know that I’m a connected person. I want to assure our supporters that we will beat Leopard on Sunday, as we want to return to Africa as champions this time around,” he said.

The black and white capital city giants were playing in the 2022/23 TotalEnergies CAF Confederations Cup and were booted out by South Africa’s DStv Premiership side Royal AM in the preliminary round. They beat Leopard 3-2 in the first round late in January.
