THE min­istry of home af­fairs will mount big screens in four cen­tral places for the dif­fer­ent re­gions of the coun­try so that all cit­i­zens can fol­low pro­ceed­ings of the 50/50 cel­e­bra­tions that will take place on April 19.

Min­is­ter Princess Tsandzile an­nounced that the much an­tic­i­pated 50/50 cel­e­bra­tions will take place at the Mavuso Trade and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre.

She then ex­plained that the big screens to be mounted in the re­spec­tive re­gions will as­sist peo­ple to fol­low the cel­e­bra­tions live.

Ad­dress­ing the me­dia, the min­is­ter said they wanted the na­tion to share in the day hence the big screens will be mounted in all four re­gions. On this day, His Majesty King Mswati III will be turn­ing 50 and cel­e­brat­ing the coun­try’s 50 years of in­de­pen­dence.

“The min­istry of home af­fairs would like to in­form the na­tion that it has pleased His Majesty to have the cel­e­bra­tions take place con­cur­rently in the four re­gions as we cel­e­brate at the main venue, the Mavuso Ex­hi­bi­tion

Cen­tre, there will also be big screens in each of the cen­tres to watch pro­ceed­ings which will be com­mu­ni­cated at a later stage,” she said. The princess fur­ther stated that trans­port would be made avail­able for those who wish to at­tend the event.

“The na­tion is also in­formed that there will be food and bev­er­ages served at the end of the cel­e­bra­tions,” she said. The min­is­ter said the min­istry would con­tinue to keep the na­tion up­dated on prepa­ra­tions un­til the day of the cel­e­bra­tions.
