Ex-PM Barn­abas was a weak­ling - Rev­erend

Observer on Saturday - - News -

Rev­erend Nathi Nkam­bule yes­ter­day re­vealed a side to former Prime Min­is­ter Sibu­siso Dlamini that most did not know.

While most knew him as a tough nut to crack, the rev­erend pre­sented the de­ceased as a weak­ling. Not in a bad way though. Nkam­bule re­vealed that Dlamini was a weak­ling, who rushed to God to for seek ad­vice all the time.

“Bekatetema,” he said in ver­nac­u­lar while stress­ing that all the time he would seek ad­vice from preach­ers on what God wanted to be done dur­ing dif­fi­cult times.

Rev­erend Nkam­bule dis­closed that the de­ceased al­ways ap­proached preach­ers for ad­vice as he knew that the se­cret was with God ev­ery time the coun­try faced dif­fi­cul­ties.


Nkam­bule said it is up to his suc­ces­sors to en­sure that the coun­try pros­pers in fu­ture by also be­liev­ing in God.

“We need more politi­cians who will know that when God closes doors no one can open them. It was so ob­vi­ous that the de­ceased was a Chris­tian. De­spite be­ing a Prime Min­is­ter of the land, he hum­bled him­self in church unlike most peo­ple when they land even the tini­est of po­si­tions,” he said.

Nkam­bule also proph­e­sied that the coun­try would not be af­fected since Dlamini has met his maker be­cause all the peo­ple that he re­lied on (preach­ers) are still alive to keep the fires burn­ing.

He dis­missed false proph­e­sies that the coun­try would crum­ble now that Dlamini has passed away.

He also thanked the late former PM’s chil­dren for lead­ing scan­dal free lives as that is the great­est gift chil­dren can give to their par­ents.
