Ex-MP Sikhum­buzo bites dust

Swazi Observer - - NATIONAL NEWS -

FORMER Nk­wene MP Sikhum­buzo Dlamini crashed out of the nom­i­na­tions of the Par­lia­men­tary Ser­vice Board.

The nom­i­na­tions took place yes­ter­day in the House of As­sem­bly and in Se­nate. Dlamini crashed out even though he had can­vassed for nom­i­na­tions, both in the House of As­sem­bly and at Se­nate as he had eyed a po­si­tion at the PSB.

In the House of As­sem­bly, Dlamini com­peted with former min­is­ters Hlo­bisile-Ndlovu, Owen Nxumalo and Wil­son Makhalempi Nt­shangase. He also com­peted with former Deputy Speaker Trusty Gina and former MPs Sivumel­wano Nxumalo, Wise­man Nt­shingila and Pa­trick ‘Pha’ Motsa.

The former Nk­wene law­maker also can­vassed for nom­i­na­tions in the up­per cham­ber. His name was pro­posed and he was up against former Sen­a­tor Men­jeni Mahlalela. Dlamini was un­lucky as he saw him­self los­ing in both Houses of Par­lia­ment.

In the House of As­sem­bly, he got 20 nom­i­na­tions, while the win­ner in the House, Hlo­bisile Ndlovu, got 38 nom­i­na­tions. In the up­per cham­ber, he got only four nom­i­na­tions, while Mahlalela, who emerged a win­ner, got 18 nom­i­na­tions.
