Mzinzi confirmed to the Siya crew that he will be taking over as the Chief Operations Officer (COO) to allow Mafani to perform his duties in the communications department. 

“We have appointed Putco Mafani as the club’s new communications and marketing manager. I’ve left the position and will be taking over in the COO position that was left vacant by Shooz Mekuto,” said Mzinzi.

Mzinzi confirmed that the other positions in the club’s structures were unaffected by recent changes.

“Peter (Koutroulis) is still the CEO and Wanda (Mbenguzana) is the football manager. We want to enhance the marketing and branding side of things in the team. We want to up our attempts to attract sponsors. The team has been relying mainly on the chairman,” explained Mzinzi.
