SOCCER – FOLLOWING the departure of coach Dumsani ‘DU’ Makhanya, Premier League side Malanti Chiefs will soon announce former Kaizer Chiefs player Humphrey Mlwane as their new mentor.

‘DU’ unceremoniously left the black and gold ensemble to join Matsapha United after they parted ways with coach Saul Chaminuka, who has since returned to his home country, Zimbabwe.

According to South African online publication ‘Laduma’, the former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder is to be named head coach of team.

The SA publication revealed that Mlwane had accepted the offer to take over as the coach of Malanti Chiefs.

Mlwane has been unattached since parting ways with Gunners FC from North West’s ABC Motsepe League.

Contacted for comment, the former midfield ace confirmed to the Siya crew that he is on his way to Swaziland for his new role.

“I will be the new coach of Malanti Chiefs in Swaziland. It’s a premier league team. I will be in charge of their remaining matches for the season. Their season is left with only six matches, so we will see how it goes,” said Mlwane.

Mlwane will be joined by Sam Diale in his Malanti technical team. The pair also worked together at Gunners FC.

Sought for comment yesterday, Malanti Chiefs PRO Lungile Dube confirmed the latest development.

“Yes, it is true coach Humprey Mlwane is already in the country and will be meeting the management tomorrow (today)”.

She said they would update their fans after the coach’s meeting with the team’s management.

“This is all I can say for now until I get an update from the management.”
