If he did not al­ready hold the de­mand­ing post of Gaut­eng MEC for ed­u­ca­tion, Panyaza Le­sufi would be an ac­tive share­holder in his beloved Moroka Swal­lows.

“I am speak­ing to some busi­ness­peo­ple to in­vest in the club be­fore it dies a slow death,” Le­sufi told City Press this week.

Le­sufi also has some ideas on how the club should work it­self out of the Na­tional First Di­vi­sion.

“Swal­lows need to look at tal­ent iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, sup­port base and fi­nan­cial mus­cle.

“The club must not re­cruit or­di­nary play­ers but re­ac­ti­vate its tal­ent iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, as it used to re­cruit great play­ers.”

The club’s sup­port base was also very weak, noted Le­sufi, who had been a loyal Swal­lows sup­porter since 1988.

And, de­spite Swal­lows’ fall from the elite league, Le­sufi added, “I will con­tinue to sup­port the team. I can’t change my loy­alty.”
