Journalists confuse Mbabane Swallows fans- Mbabane Swallows General Manager

By on August 2, 2018

Mbabane Swallows General Manager Sandile Beyond 2000 Zwane has come out with gun blazing to local journalists accusing them of confusing Mbabane Swallows supporters by intentionally reporting lies.

Zwane made this statement during an interview he had on the National radio program called Sport Show that was hosted by Siphesihle Nxumalo. When asked about circulating rumors that Mbabane Swallows is experiencing some challenges which also reflects on the player’s performance on the pitch, Zwane dismissed the rumors pointing out that at this time of the year rumors are bound to circulate which can sometimes be about players leaving the team and about players that are not happy. He advice the public that they should be aware that these are just rumors that team is not aware of.  He also assured the nation that all the Mbabane Swallows players are happy because they get what was agreed upon and also have a perfect accommodation.

Zwane then expressed that there are people who are always looking for something negative to write about something that they even publish even if they are told that the is no story or they have been misinformed.

What worth noting is that Zwane and local journalist have been in each other’s throat in the past few months as he is currently Mbabane Swallows mouth piece after the position phased out when the team lost Sibusiso Manana two years ago. On the 19th of June, Swazi Observer published an article titled “Swallows need a PRO” an article where the publication complained about Zwane denying any knowledge of anything that has to do with the team among other things.

On another interview that Zwane had with the Eswatini Broadcasting Information Services (EBIS), where he was asked on whether if Mbabane Swallows will be letting go of some of its key players, a question that was a follow up for circulating rumors. Zwane expressed that Mbabane Swallows will not be transferring any players ahead of its CAF competition. After the team’s clash with the Tunisian side (Etoile du Sahel) local publications started reporting that Mbabane Swallows parted ways with three of its key players which was totally against the promise that Zwane made on the public radio.

If there is anyone to be blamed on the triangle of Mbabane Swallows, Mbabane Swallows fans as well as journalist is Mbabane Swallows General Manager Sandile Zwane. Indeed, the team needs a Public Relations Officer because clearly the relationship of Zwane and journalist have been tarnished and Zwane’s credibility has been destroyed. This will then lead to even more confusions going forward because journalist no longer trust anything coming from Zwane’s mouth with regards to anything touching on Mbabane Swallows.
