Kindly allow me Mr Editor to express my greatest appreciation to the relatively new company in Manzini that is showing great love and compassion for the destitute and under-privileged citizens of this country.

I was greatly touched when I read in your newspaper last week about the good work done by United Holdings whereby it gave over a thousand blankets and washing basins loaded with food stuffs to the elderly people under Sigwe Inkhundla.

On top of that, the company also made a kind donation of shoes and string bags to about 250 destitute children under the same inkhundla. It was heart-warming to see the elderly wearing big smiles as they received their treasured parcels.


I am sure they enjoyed their food hampers and are also cherishing the comfort of their blankets. Lesson from this gesture is that we should all take good care of our elderly.

Big ups to United Holdings’directors and management, particularly Phillip Lobhengula De Sousa, who is the brains behind such an innovative and benevolent company.We are truly encouraged to see a humble liSwati like De Sousa doing such great things for the underprivileged.


I am more fascinated by his idea of honouring and acknowledging the good work being done by the Queen Mother by supporting her noble course.
We love Her Majesty hence our greatest thanks to companies like United Holdings that render such massive support to her caring gesture.

I truly wish that other 100 per cent locally-owned companies could copy De Sousa by supporting Indlovukazi’s Philani Maswati Charity Organisation and any other non-profit-making entities that are changing the lives of the poor. 
Apart from the donation, it was also pleasant to learn that the event was fully supported by Sigodlo, princes and princesses, chiefs and other high-ranking dignitaries.


Credit must also go to the pupils of Lulakeni Primary and High School for their splendid performances in front of Her Majesty. I hear they were a marvel to watch as they displayed various entertaining performances from morning to sunset.

I would be glad if you could also allow me, Editor, to thank most sincerely the Member of Parliament of the Sigwe Inkhundla ‘Cruiser’ Ngcamphalala, who is the source of hope for the constituency.

The way he is so active and passionate about taking good initiatives to Sigwe actually sets the tone for other MPs. In closing, please allow me to once again express my thanks to the main sponsor of the day, United Holdings, together with its partners, namely; Eswatini Mobile, Standard Bank and OK Foods.
