On a personal note, the President of the NFAS had good memories with the former Chairman of the PLS as he had the opportunity to be his colleague at the Central Bank of Swaziland and also his manager in football while Mr. Victor Gamedze was still a player. “I had good memories with Mr. Victor Gamedze as he was my colleague at the Central Bank of Swaziland and we met again in the football industry.

The head of Swazi football also stated that, the football family will be even more solid during this sad period as Mr. Victor Gamedze was a passionate football person.
