Prime Minister Ambrose Mandvulo Dlamini will accompany Enactus National Champions SANU to the World Cup to be held in California, United States of America (USA).
The event will be held on September 16-18.
This was revealed by Enactus Eswatini Board of Directors Chairperson and Nedbank Managing Director (MD) Fikile Nkosi during the national championships held at Esibayeni Lodge in Matsapha on Saturday.
“I would like to inform you that the PM will travel with the team to California, and we do appeal to the corporate sector to accompany the PM in this very important trip. We will be happy to assist with invitational letter for those who want to also accompany the team and also ask the leaders in the corporate world to make sure this happen,” he said.
The Prime Minister Ambrose Dlamini, who was the main guest, said he was happy to be part of the event. “It is a humbling experience for me to be part of Enactus once again especially because we were there when it started then known as SIFE International. Together with the Minister of Commerce Manqoba Khumalo, we played a role in this organisation and it makes me happy to see it at this stage now.
“I remember being appointed the first Director in the Board and then asked to identify other men and women of integrity to be part of the structure,” he said.
The PM assured that government would continue supporting Enactus Eswatini to ensure its continued success.
“Government contributed about E0.5 million to Enactus every year and will continue supporting them in future. I heard the Board Chairperson that they would love an increase but luckily she against reminded that this organisation is private sector driven,” he said.
