Ngobe: The Swallows Situation Is Similar To Witbank Spurs

Dumisa Ngobe is in the house, and has answered your questions! Today, he discusses the tug-of-war between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates for his signature, his feelings on the situation that Swallows face, and his first Bafana Bafana call-up.

How do you feel about the current situation at Moroka Swallows? – vuyani_Sali

Dumisa Ngobe: The Swallows issue is similar to the one that Witbank Spurs went through. It is sad to see teams that have always had a major contribution to the top flight are now fighting for survival in the lower leagues. I mean, look at Swallows. That club made the original Soweto Derby! I feel sorry for the fans who were always by their team's side.

How did you feel when you received your first Bafana Bafana call-up? – Phura07821

DM: Ha ha ha! The Bafana call-up was a very funny story. I got a call from my teammate, Helman Mkhalele, to say that the team were looking for me. I was so confused because I did not receive a letter like the rest of the players who were called up. I could not believe it until I got into camp and I got the bag with my kit, but I was very excited.

If you could be 20 again, what would you do differently in your football career? – HikerT

DM: I had a good career and I enjoyed every moment. I guess I wouldn't change anything.

There was a tug-of-war between Chiefs and Pirates for your services. What really happened? – TrevorBaker

DM: Yes, there was a bit of a fight for me between Pirates and Chiefs. The story was blown out of proportion, but in the end I signed for the Buccaneers.

I remember, in 1993, you were at Kaizer Chiefs, but you did not stay long at the club. Can you please explain what happened? – molefe mahlaba

DM: It was mainly due to the fights that started with Pirates and Chiefs. We ended in court battles over contract issues because, in those days, if your contract ended, you were still part of that club and not a free agent. That was when I decided to leave.

What are your fondest memories of Ngobe?
