Princess Sab'sile wanted answers on multi-million sugarcane project
LOBAMBA – Princess Sab’sile is alleged to have staged the ‘lone pro
test’ at Ludzidzini Royal Residence last week as she wanted answers relating to a multi-million sugarcane project which has been identified for her area.
The process, according to sources, is alleged to encroach on to the princess’ land and she is uncomfortable about the idea.
It had been earlier reported that the princess, had among other reasons, staged the protest as she also wanted answers as to the delay why her son was not being installed as chief of Madlange-mpisi and Mzaceni Royal Kraal in the northern Hhohho region
Princess Sab’sile is the wife of the late Chief Mdvuba Magagula, who died in 2007.
Acting Ludzidzini Governor Timothy Velabo Mtetwa confirmed that the princess had been to Ludzidzini as she wanted clarity on a few issues. According to the Governor, the princess wanted to know who the overseer of the project was.
"The country’s elders explained to her that the project will be chaired by Dr Ben Mshamdane Sibandze," he explained.
He said it was explained to the princess that the project belonged to Their Majesties.
Mtetwa said she seemed to have understood what was related to her thus she left and returned home.
When contacted later and asked about her visit to Ludzidzini, Princess Sab’sile said she had paid a courtesy call on her parents. She wouldn’t explain further and requested that she be left alone.
Efforts to get comment from the Swaziland Water Agricultural Development Enterprise (SWADE) who are said to oversee the project proved futile as senior officers, who are in a position to comment on behalf of the institution, were reported to be in meetings.
Minister of Agriculture, Clement Dlamini while confirming that they had been summoned to Ludzidzini said he was not aware of any project that is being stalled. The minister said he would not reveal details of the meeting they had been summoned to.
