HIS  Majesty King Mswati III and Her Majesty the Indlovukazi have since been informed of Prince Phinda’s passing on.

The prince is reported to have passed on while at MediSun Clinic at Ezuwlini on Thursday.

This was confirmed by acting Ludzidzini Governor Lusendvo Fakudze affectionately known uMngani weMakhosi.

Fakudze said the late prince's immediate family appeared before the King to report the demise on Friday.

He said the King then sent them to the prince's siblings to inform them of the unfortunate incident.

“Silo sabese sisitfuma kuwo eMalangeni, bantfwabenkosi, kutsi sibabikele ngalesehlakalo,” Fakudze said.

He said they would go back to the King today to ask for the day of the funeral. He advised the media to await the official announcement of the funeral preparations.

“Namuhla kusihlwa batawuphindzela kuso Silo sale kuyoviwa lusuku lolutawubusiswa ngiso sekufihla uMntfwanenkosi. Nani betindzaba seniyawumela simemetelo lesiyawukhishwa ngibo bemndeni,” the acting governor concluded.  At the time of his death, Prince Phinda was chairman of the Land Management Committee.
