An unnamed South African business man has been appointed director at one of Eswatini biggest club, Manzini Wanderers, according to Swazi Observer.
The newspaper has reported that negotiations between the Pretoria-based businessman and the club had recently been completed and he had already signed on the dotted line.
The director was supposed to be unveiled last Friday, however, he didn’t show up due to work commitments.
Long serving and seasoned administrator Sandile ‘Chief’ Dlamini will be the director’s signatory.
“Everything has been sorted. We are expecting him in the country anytime to be unveiled to the Wanderers family,” said the source.
The team’s Council of Elders Chairman Joe Nkumane confirmed that the director signed on the dotted line. However, he did not reveal the tenure of the contract.
“I can confirm that the director signed. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen the terms of the contract,” he said diplomatically.
The arrival of the new director comes after the Weslians have been without a director for the past 10 months following the unceremonious departure of South Africa businessman Mehluli Nhlengetfwa towards the end of last year.
Since then the team has been rocked by financial crisis as well as a power struggle that reared it’s ugly head at the most followed club in the land.
