Observer on Saturday - - Sport - By Sa­belo Ma­jola

- The Na­tional Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion of Swazi­land (NFAS) new ex­ec­u­tive held their first re­treat and they were tu­tored on the im­por­tance of cor­po­rate gov­er­nance.

The three-day re­treat started on Wed­nes­day and was held at Esi­bayeni Lodge end­ing yes­ter­day. NFAS Pres­i­dent Adam ‘Bomber’ Mthethwa said the re­treat had ex­perts who took the ex­ec­u­tive through an ori­en­ta­tion ex­er­cise that en­tailed cor­po­rate gov­er­nance. He said that among other things they learnt on cor­po­rate gov­er­nance were me­dia re­la­tions, an el­e­ment that is also en­dorsed by FIFA.

“We also learnt that in­for­ma­tion can only go out af­ter we have dis­cussed it as a com­mit­tee and reached a res­o­lu­tion. It is not healthy for the me­dia to have in­for­ma­tion prior to a com­mit­tee dis­cus­sion,” he said.

Mthethwa said they had planned to have the Min­is­ter of Sports David ‘Cruiser’ Ng­cam­pha­lala grace the gath­er­ing so that the

ex­ec­u­tive could be of­fi­cially in­tro­duced him but he was held up in other na­tional events.

Mthethwa then touched on the re­ports about the call by MPs to have the na­tional team coach Pi­eter De Jongh sacked.

“Once we are done with the pro­gramme, we would have a press con­fer­ence to say our stand on the mat­ter,” he said.

TU­TORED: NFAS Pres­i­dent Adam ‘Bomber’ Mthethwa.
