Swazi Observer - - NATIONAL NEWS - By Mbono Md­luli

PRIME Min­is­ter Dr. Sibu­siso Dlamini has of­fi­cially wel­comed Prophet Wal­ter Magaya and his wife Prophet­ess Tendai Magaya into the coun­try.

This hap­pened yes­ter­day dur­ing a short event that took place at the Cabi­net of­fices at Hos­pi­tal Hill, Mba­bane. Magaya, who hails from Zim­babwe, was in Dvokol­wako on Wed­nes­day to do­nate E1 mil­lion and 10 houses to Phi­lani Maswati, a char­ity or­gan­i­sa­tion whose pa­tron is Her Majesty the Indlovukazi.

Magaya was in­tro­duced to the PM by Swazi­land Na­tional Prov­i­dent Fund Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer (CEO) Prince Lonkhokhela.

He was in the com­pany of Min­istry of Tnkhundla Prin­ci­pal Sec­re­tary (PS) Princess Gce­bile, and Phi­lani Maswati Chair­man Lutfo Dlamini. Magaya is in­volved in many projects back in Zim­babwe and the projects in­clude min­ing, con­struc­tion, and other busi­ness ini­tia­tives.

The prime min­is­ter said what was done by Magaya was a great job be­cause the Queen Mother was at the fore­front of hu­man de­vel­op­ment in the coun­try.

He told Magaya that Indlovukazi had a char­ity or­gan­i­sa­tion (Phi­lani Maswati) that wanted to make life eas­ier for the el­derly peo­ple in the coun­try.

“Your com­ing to Swazi­land is a bless­ing to us be­cause the coun­try is in need of the prayers and bless­ings you bring here. We are happy that you are blend­ing your spir­i­tual work with busi­ness be­cause it is a fact that for re­li­gious ac­tiv­i­ties to be im­ple­mented, fi­nances are needed,” the prime min­is­ter said.

The pre­mier told the prophet that Swazi­land was a Chris­tian coun­try, even though the Con­sti­tu­tion al­lowed for other re­li­gions to be prac­ticed.

He said they looked for­ward to hav­ing a healthy work­ing re­la­tion­ship with Magaya, es­pe­cially be­cause the Magaya fam­ily re­ceived a Royal sta­tus last year, which made Her Majesty to be an adop­tive mother to the prophet­ess.

Dlamini said he looked for­ward to the lobola day when Magaya would pay to the Queen Mother, as his adop­tive mother-in-law.

Re­spond­ing to the prime min­is­ter, Prophet Magaya said he was also happy to be part of the Swazi peo­ple and he looked for­ward to a healthy work­ing re­la­tion­ship.

He told the prime min­is­ter that they were ready to be di­rected and ad­vised by him (prime min­is­ter) as they im­ple­ment their projects in the coun­try.

Magaya pre­sented a book about him­self to the pre­mier. The book was about the projects done by Magaya back in Zim­babwe and other neig­bour­ing coun­tries. Th­ese projects are worth mil­lions of dol­lars.
