MBABANE – The Swaziland National Council of Arts and Culture has recommended that the Miss Deaf and Miss Deaf Africa Beauty pageants should continue as planned.

This is part of the recommendations contained in a report sent to the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs.
The ministry instr-ucted SNCAC to compile a report as it wanted an explanation why there were problems regarding the contest. SNCAC has already submitted the report to the ministry and it is yet to be discussed by the relevant authorities who include Minister Hlobisile Ndlovu.

 Information gathered is that SNCAC recommended that a new committee be elected to run the pageant and the ministry be fully involved in making sure that they become a success. SNCAC made it clear that since the Miss Deaf Africa pageant was an event that has to do with other countries, it was important for government to be fully involved.

Stanley Dlamini, SNCAC Chief Executive Officer, confirmed that these were some of the recommendations contained in the report.
“The report is not yet public as it has been handed over to the ministry but I can confirm that we have recommended that both pageants be held as planned,” he said.

He said this was a recommendation and the ministry would have to decide on what to do after looking at our recommendations.
“We have already submitted the report to the ministry with our recommendations. We will wait for the ministry to decide. Once the ministry decides, we will then act according to their decision,” he said.

“Dlamini did not want to reveal other contents of the report saying it was still with the ministry.
“Once they agree that it can be made public, we will definitely give it to the media but for now, it is still an internal matter,” he said.

The minister could not be reached for comment as her phone rang without being answered. The minister was called several times but still could not be reached. Among other questions that the minister was to be asked was if she had seen the report.
