Sihlangu coaches to leave EFCA executive posts


Eswatini Football Coaches Association (EFCA) have successfully proposed that executive members who are hired by the mother body, Eswatini Football Association (EFA) must relinquish their posts in their association.

The proposal was adopted in Sunday’s EFCA extra-ordinary general meeting held at Sigwaca Conference Hall.

The idea, which was collectively agreed by the about 50 members, will be drafted and formally presented to the EFCA Annual General Meeting in the next couple of months.

Members noted a conflict of interest when their executive members are hired by EFA as per Article 3 (6) of their constitution under the executive objectives which states that “They are to advise, guide and protect all registered football coaches in Eswatini from injustice and unfair treatment arising from their employment and service arising from direct or indirect from the performance of their duties as coaches within any organised football entity whatsoever”.

Though the EFCA is heading to its elective General Assembly in just under two months, it is worth noting that the current association’s Chairman Anthony Mdluli is senior football national team Sihlangu assistant and Treasurer Dominic Kunene is the head coach.

The EFCA executive and its members were aligning their outdated constitution with that of EFA ahead of their AGM for certain clauses to be adopted.
