According to KickOff, Swallows are on the cusp of dropping into the relegation zone as they are in 14th position with 19 points while Platinum Stars are in 15th position with 18 points but have two games in hand.
Mangena, who donned the colours of the Dube Birds between 1986 and 1988, has offered some advice for the club to move forward as it is their second season they are fighting to avoid relegation.
"Personally I would not understand what is happening at the club as I am not involved in the day-to-day running of the club. However it is saddening to see a club of Swallows' stature or Swallows' calibre going through this," Mangena said.
"Remember, when I joined in the club in the 1990s as a shareholder they were going through the same thing that they are going through now. It is sad, seemingly they cannot learn from their past mistakes.
“You can't suffer from the same thing every now and then, you have to learn from your mistakes and fix them. It is a common saying in life, go back to the drawing board and rectify your mistakes.”
