PRAY FOR ANOTHER BARNABAS - KING
...Warns those who speak ill of late ex-PM will die
His Majesty King Mswati III has urged the nation to pray for the country to get another person of the late former Prime Minister Sibusiso Dlamini’s calibre to feel the void he has left in the country’s political landscape.
The King further urged the nation to pray that the appropriate candidates are appointed into Cabinet and further to Senate.
Speaking through his representative Prince Fipha during the late former PM’s memorial service in Manzini yesterday the King said it is only the Christian community that holds the key as to what will happen next through prayers after the recent national elections.
“There is a need for prayer so that the rightful candidates that will positively transform the country’s economy are appointed. We need to pray for people of Barnabas’ cali bret ole ad Cabinet. Condolences are sent to the Nazarene Church, the former Cabinet and the nation at large for having lost such a person who spoke pure Siswati like someone, who never went to school, able to finish his speeches without including any English word. It was the same when he spoke English as he finished his speeches without including any Siswati word,” said the King.
His Majesty also had a message to those that speak ill of the late former Prime Minister Dr. Sibusiso Dlamini now that he has passed on.
The King said God would punish all those that feel they were wronged by the late former PM and, therefore, feel they have a right to speak all bad things about him just because they did not manage to settle their differences with him while he was still alive. “It has reached His Majesty that at this time there are those that failed to fix things with the late while he was still alive and are now speaking ill of him.
His family members are urged not to join the fray and fight fire with fire. God will definitely take steps against them,” said His Majesty’s representative.
The King through Prince Fipha and Bishop Samson Hlathswako presented a special present to the D la mini family to pull them through these hard times as a sign of mourning his death.
