There is hope for better lives as His Majesty King Mswati promised jobs to Emaswati.
He noted that during the People’s Parliament (Sibaya) in 2023, Emaswati expressed their wish for

His Majesty and his government to create jobs  in order to curb the high unemployment rate in the country.

True to his promise to deliver on the Sibaya submissions, he announced that there was a project that would provide job opportunities for Eswatini’s youth.

He said some investors who had promised him a birthday gift in the form of a job creation initiative have lived up to their promise.

On Wednesday, His Majesty the king cut the sod at the construction site for Semlex Group’s Africa head offices and plant at Nokwane Special Economic Zone (SEZ). During his address on Wednesday, the King stated that the authorities of this company promised to inject around E800 million as a start-up for this project.

Yesterday, the king said the opportunity availed by the investors would prove job opportunities of Emaswati, especially the youth.

He also stated that recent statistics indicate a slight decrease in the unemployment rate for Eswatini youth, which he said was encouraging. Still, the king said there was a need to accelerate efforts to create jobs for all.

Some of the sectors that are promising to help the youth out of unemployment, according to the king, include mining, tourism, hospitality, health, education, and construction services.

His Majesty further called for support of these sectors in a bid to grow the country’s economy and to further attract additional investment.
