Official: Swallows FC president steps down


Swallows FC president Panyaza Lesufi has stepped down from his role with immediate effect.

Lesufi was voted in as the new African National Congress (ANC) Gauteng chairperson last month.

As a result, Lesufi announced on social media he has to resign from his position as the Birds' president.

Lesufi was a vital part of Swallows returning to the top-flight in South African football after buying Maccabi FC's National First Division status back in 2019.

Swallows then secured automatic promotion to the DStv Premiership in 2020, while they managed to avoid relegation in the play-offs last month.
