AS per the Resource Mobilisation Committee announcement, Minister of Home Affairs Princess Tsandzile has assured those that have birthday gifts for His Majesty King Mswati III that they will have a chance to present their gifts.

Addressing the media yesterday after watching rehearsals for the 50/50 celebrations, Princess Tsandzile said unlike before, those that had gifts for His Majesty would have to wait a bit longer with their gifts as they would only get to present the gifts to His Majesty at a later day. She said the day would be announced to the public through the media.

“Unlike in the past, people who have gifts for His Majesty will present their gifts at a later date not on the day of the celebrations or before the celebrations. We will celebrate on Thursday and then on another  that I will announce that  those who have gifts can come and present them. It won’t be the next day but soon after,” she said.  Preparations for the big day are at an advanced stage all around the country.

 Interviewed yesterday after the rehearsals, Lubombo Regional Administrator (RA) Sylvia Mthethwa said preparations in her region were at a very advanced stage and they were ready for the big day.  “Everything is in order we are patiently waiting for the big day,” she said.

She said  there  would  be entertainment galore to keep the attendees captivated until proceedings at Mavuso Trade Centre begin.

“I will also be at Siteki with the multitudes from the region, we are ready,” she said.

The rehearsals yesterday were also attended by the Acting Prime Minister Paul Dlamini, Minister Justice and Constitutional Affairs Edgar Hillary, Minister Economic Planning Prince Hlangusempi, Minister Education and Training Dr Phineas Magagula, Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture David Ngcamphalala.

Also present were Principal Secretaries in the Ministries of Education, Sports and Culture Dr Sibongile Dlamini and Prince Mlayeto respectively and the Manzini Regional Administrator Chief Gcokoma.
