Swazi Observer - - ENTERTAINMENT - By Nok­wanda Sibandze and Setsabile Nkam­bule

THE coun­try’s am­bas­sador Nosipho Dlamini seems not to be known by the pub­lic.

Miss Eswa­tini should be known by the pub­lic as she is the coun­try’s am­bas­sador.

This pub­li­ca­tion reached out to the pub­lic ask­ing the rea­sons be­hind them not know­ing some­one who is meant to rep­re­sent the king­dom

Most peo­ple ad­mit­ted to think­ing that the Miss Eswa­tini pageant no longer took place. As soon as they were told that there is a reign­ing Miss Eswa­tini, they ques­tioned and shared their views on why they thought the pageant does no longer ex­ist.

Jump­ing in on the mat­ter was Pageant Eswa­tini Pres­i­dent Cather­ine Pot­gi­eter, who said if peo­ple do not know who Miss Eswa­tini was, then they were not vig­i­lant as she has been ac­tive.

“Well, if peo­ple do not know about her then they are clearly not tak­ing note of ev­ery­thing she has done. She has been ac­tive, mostly on so­cial me­dia,” she ex­plained.

Pot­gi­eter said they were yet to dis­cuss all their ac­tiv­i­ties line- up for this year.


“We are still to have a meet­ing where will dis­cuss how she will im­ple­ment all her plans and how she will do all her ac­tiv­i­ties. We are then hop­ing that after all this, then the pub­lic will get to know more about her,” she said. Miss Eswa­tini didn’t want to com­ment on this is­sue, but gave this pub­li­ca­tion a sneak pic­ture of what she would be busy with this year.

She stated that peo­ple should read pa­pers more to see who and what she does. She said she will be fo­cus­ing on char­ity projects and do com­mu­nity ser­vices.


“We have al­ready started last Satur­day with my girls’ men­tor­ship group by pro­vid­ing food stuff and school uni­form to a Masango fam­ily. I will also host a Girls Em­pow­er­ment event, and also do en­vi­ron­ment clean­ing.

If any in­di­vid­ual or com­pa­nies wishes to as­sist or be a spon­sor on the men­tioned projects, they are free to con­tact the Arts and Cul­ture of­fices,” she stated.
