Prince Omari' returning to SD
MBABANE – Prince Makhosini ‘Omari’ Dlamini is expected to jet into the country this evening.
According to well placed sources, Dlamini will be in the country to initiate certain charity projects.
In an interview yesterday morning, Dlamini confirmed that he would be arriving in the country today.
"I expect to be in Swaziland for about a week," he said during the brief interview.
Dlamini, who is based in Johannesburg, has been in the news for the past two months following the publication of articles in the South African press which alleged that he was abusing the Swaziland royal family name in that country.
He was also quoted in a South African weekly commenting about private matters of the royal family.
Dlamini, who claimed to come from the Nhlangwini Royal House in KwaZulu Natal, later refuted ever commenting about the Swazi royal family in the South African press.
Last month he came into the country in the company of his mother, Phindiwe Dlamini-Sangweni, to meet with certain members of the royal family to explain the controversy linked to his name in the media.
His presence in the country drew the attention of the public as Dlamini claimed to be a close relative of the royal family, but refused to divulge the identify of his father.
Speaking telephonically from Johannesburg yesterday, Dlamini said his visit this time around had nothing to do with the controversy that was surrounding his previous visit.
He confirmed that he was working on numerous charity projects that would be of great benefit to needy Swazis.
"I cannot give you any details yet because I am due to meet some major players in the projects we are working on when I get there so it would not be proper for me to comm-ent.
"Hopefully, we will be able to finalise everything and we will make whatever necessary announcements that need to be made while I am there," Dlamini said.
He refused to be drawn to comment on any progress made to resolve the issues which brought him into the country last month.
"All I request is that I be allowed the pri-vacy to conclude the business I am coming to do there and giving it the dignity it deserves.
"When we are done with that we can then sit down and talk about anything else, if, indeed, there is anything else to discuss," Dlamini said.
In a previous interview, he indicated that he had dedicated himself to working with HIV/AIDS charities and, wherever possible, he would always find ways to bring awareness and solutions to the HIV/AIDS situation in the country.
