Mbabane: Giants Mbabane Swallows have mutually parted ways with their Zambian coach Honor Janza.
Club president Bishop Bheki Lukhele said yesterday that Janza will not see out his two-year contract after joining at the beginning of the Covid-19 interrupted season. Janza is and will remain in his native Zambia.
Janza has, according to Lukhele through a letter that has been received by his office, requested that he be released him from his contract with Swallows due to the COVID-19 situation.
The former Chipolopolo coach had signed a two year contract with the team, starting from 2019 and ending in 2021.
“He has requested me to release him from the terms of that contract which still had a year to run.
Following this request, I hereby announce that I have graciously agreed to release Coach Janza from the terms of the contract with Mbabane Swallows Football Club,” Lukhele said in his announcement.
He continued that for the record, the ending of the contract is mutual, and is a result of the Coach’s request.
“As President of Mbabane Swallows Football Club, I wish to thank Mr. Janza for his services to the Club in the last season, even though we did not finish it due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
I also wish the Coach well in his future endeavours.”
Janza stated in his letter to the President that he enjoyed his stay in the country.
“The Coach has thanked the entire Mbabane Swallows family, including fans, for treating him well during his stay in Eswatini.
He says he will always be a Mbabane Swallows supporter and will have a soft spot for the country and its people.”
Lukhele then assured all our stakeholders that the red and white glamour side will sign a new coach, as well as more players.
“I promise that Mbabane Swallows Football Club will be ready when the 20/21 football season resumes,” he ended.
