His Majesty further extended words of appreciation to the Shembe leader for coming into the country and said he was looking forward to the joint prayer service, which he (Shembe leader) and his congregation would hold with Their Majesties next Saturday. 


The Shembe leader also presented His Majesty with two cows.


“We are grateful that you have come to Eswatini and you are most welcome,” said the King.


Also present during the meeting were Prime Minister, Cleopas Dlamini, Ministers Princess Lindiwe (Home Affairs) and Thuli Dladla (Foreign Affairs) as well as the Shembe delegation, among Emabandla present.


Also forming part of the Shembe delegation was Mahlangatsha Chief, Prince Juwako who is a staunch member of the church. 


The Shembe leader has been conducting morning services and one-on-one sessions with the throngs of people who come through for prayers.


Bethany has been abuzz with action as the congregants flock into the area for the services on daily basis.


Tomorrow, which is the Sabbath Day according to the church, the Shembes will hold a big service where their leader will deliver a sermon and his special messages to the church and nation. The leadership of the church has invited the public to attend in numbers for the services stating that they were not restricted to their membership.
