It is im­por­tant to have old pho­to­graphs be­cause they present to one an im­age of the past. The pho­tos can help one piece to­gether his­tor­i­cal times and im­ages give us a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of that time.

The Na­tional Mu­seum is part­ner­ing with Yebo Art Gallery to ex­hibit to the pub­lic, im­ages of where we were at In­de­pen­dence com­pared to where we are now as a coun­try.

It is im­por­tant to note that de­spite the chal­lenges that we face as a coun­try, be it e c onomic de­vel op­ment,health, so­cial, we are still one ties.

The stately house boasts an ar­ray of en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas both in­side as well as al fresco on both tiles and lawns.

The ex­pan­sive rolling lawns are avail­able for mar­ques style set up which is the ul­ti­mate po­si­tion to take in the back­drop views of Sheba’s and Mdz­imba Moun­tains.

It is an ideal op­por­tu­nity to show­case The Sharma House ex­clu­sive fa­cil­i­ties in col­lab­o­ra­tion with a lo­cal art ex­hi­bi­tion hosted by Yebo Art Gallery in cel- of the most peace­ful coun­tries and we cher­ish this peace and tran­quil­lity. We are also a na­tion blessed with tra­di­tional cul­ture that is rich and binds the na­tion to­gether in cer­e­mony and dance. “ ebrat­ing 50 years of in­de­pen­dence this year. We are proudly pro­mot­ing lo­cal Swazi artists. We hope that the event will in­spire both the cor­po­rate and pub­lic do­main to cel­e­brate Swazi­land’s 50th in­de­pen­dence through­out the course of 2018. Royal Vil­las sales rep­re­sen­ta­tive will be on hand dur­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion to an­swer any en­quiry guests might have with re­gards to the func­tion and ac­com­mo­da­tion fa­cil­i­ties.”
