MBABANE – National First Division side and MoMo Cup voting exercise pacesetters Black Swallows are reportedly up in arms with the PLE.

Reports suggest that the Pigg’s Peak  based-side have challenged the decision by the Premier League of Eswatini (PLE) to deduct over one million votes in their tally on the grounds that they have been obtained illegally. The team is said to have given the PLE office 48 hours to reinstate the deducted votes. The team felt the move by the PLE was unlawful and they were never given a chance to show cause why the votes should not be deducted. A source within the PLE who was present when the correspondence reached the PLE office, stressed that the team was totally dismayed by the decision to deduct the votes without affording them the right to be heard. It is believed the 48-hour period will lapse tomorrow.


“The club wanted to be given an opportunity to be heard, but it was ignored. After deductions the club then made follow up by giving PLE the 48 hours to reinstate the votes,” alleged the impeccable source. On July 17, the PLE issued  a statement and shared that over 2.1 million in the system had to be declared null and void because they were attributed to MoMo agents and merchants, much against the rules of the tournament. “Black Swallows understand the rules. All they wanted was to be heard to state their case,” insisted the source. “We cannot confirm nor deny the matter. The team is still consulting on that. However, I would like to thank all our supporters who voted and still voting for us. Without them we are nothing. We encourage them to continue using their MoMo accounts to be able to get more points to vote. It’s still a long way to go but we believe we are in the right track,” Philile Dlamini, Black Swallows Chief Executive Officer, said.
