It is the day many want to pencil in their dairies; the day they get to shower Their Majesties with gifts.
Aptly titled ‘tetfulo’, this event has drawn throngs of people over the years, and His Majesty has received gifts of every kind – from Pastor Warren’s basket of fruits and makhaya chicken to cheques and most expensive furniture.
It comes as no surprise therefore that many look out for this day, for this day also offers the rare opportunity for many to take a picture with the Ingwenyama.
As his 51st birthday draws closer, Emaswati are looking forward to this day with bated breath.
However, they will have to wait a little longer, as the day has been postponed.
According to the Minister of Home Affairs Princess Lindiwe, the day has been postponed indefinitely.
The minister made this announcement yesterday at the ministry’s headquarters.
The initial presentation of the gifts was scheduled for tomorrow at Lozitha Palace. “We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these changes; it is highly regretted. May I also urge the nation and companies to continue with contributions and donations as the Resource Mobilisation Committee hasn’t stopped working,” she stated.
Individuals interested to make contributions can contact the Secretariat of the Resource Mobilisation Committee on +268 7650 5151 or +268 2411 7605 to register their pledge.
Financial contributions can be directly deposited into a dedicated government bank account which holds monies specifically for hosting the celebration. Details of the account are as follows;
BANK: STANDARD BANK ACCOUNT
NAME: RESOURCE MOBILISATION ACCOUNT NO: 9110002365661
BRANCH: MBABANE BRANCH
BRANCH CODE: 663164
