After 41 years of service to the Swimming pools of Bulawayo Mr E A Soganile has retired. This man has done an amazing job of caring for all the swimming pools the Council has, for so many years, but more significantly in recent years. He has been described as a swimming pool genius by Mr Shaun Adriaanse, the head of the Swimming Confederation in Southern Africa whilst supervising the Region 5 games. Today the City Council honoured Mr Soganile with a small party at the side of the pool, we were kept amused by the stories told by members of his staff and his friends within the council, and finally he was entertained by his staff singing in his honour. Those present were then treated to drinks and snacks. The Matabeleland swimming fraternity will miss the man who knows everything there is to know about our swimming pools!
