Mere to remain with Swallows in remarkable U-turn

Mere was suspended by the club before for alleged misconduct towards the end of last year, which was expected to lead to his departure from the club, with some speculation suggesting he could retire.

However, at the start of this year, Swallows CEO Sipho Xulu would not confirm if the club was parting ways with Mere, and revealed that there was an internal investigation going on.

“The matter is not finally resolved and I cannot confirm if he has left the club,” Xulu said.

“It is still an ongoing thing between the employer and the employee and concerning both parties, we cannot share with the public. But it should be finalised soon in the next few days.”

Now Mere is set to remain part of Swallows setup after his disciplinary matter was finalised this week, and he will soon be back at training.

Mere joined Swallows in 2019 and was a prominent figure last season, missing just four games as the club finishes sixth in their first campaign in the DStv Premiership.

Yet, this season he has played six games, with his last appearance was in October against Chippa United. The relationship between Mere and Swallows then collapsed among allegations of misconduct, but now it appears all in not lost.
