Met my counterpart

Meet my counterpart, who I will be working with for the next two years, Dennis Malinga. An older guy who works fighting HIV/AIDS every day all day.

No language difficulties at all, he speaks perfect siSwati and I dont speak hardly any, so we just speak in English.

Oh, Dennis (he is Swazi even though his first name is an English one) is a manager of a soccer team in the Super League, which is basically a 3rd division team in the professional league (although no one gets paid in the league at any level)
