According to the Jet Rookie of the Month panel, "The 22-year-old Themba has taken advantage of every opportunity he has been given by the 'Birds' head coach Ian Gorowa to establish himself in his first season in the elite league, hence his nomination in the Jet Club PSL Rookie of the Month.
"After playing just five games - three in Gorowa's starting line-up, while he came on as a substitute in the other two games - Themba, whose football career was nurtured at the Jet-sponsored First Division League side, Pretoria University's development team back in 2002, is a promising star whose future in football looks bright.
"Since making his professional debut on October 21 in Swallows' 1-0 home victory over Black Leopards, the Witbank-born star midfielder, who had a stint at Ajax Cape Town's development team, has never looked back as he continued to work hard to win the hearts of both the club's technical team and fans. With his best game was away to Kaizer Chiefs which Swallows won 2-1 at Durban's Absa stadium on November 7."
