MALIYADUMA – Bishop Jeremiah Thwala, who pledged to donate E10 million to the Voice of the Church (VOC) radio station last week, wanted to build a hospital for the community of his home area.


The 41-year-old self-confessed Swazi billionaire made the pledge during the radio station’s 20th anniversary which was held at the Mavuso Trade and Exhibition Centre, last Saturday.


The function was attended by, among others, Prime Minister Sibusiso Dlamini, cabinet ministers, Members of Parliament (MPs), members of the business community, church ministers from various denominations and Christians from various churches.


The Times SUNDAY visited Jeremiah’s parental home in Maliyaduma.
It was established that his father died more than a decade ago.
Jeremiah’s mother, Maria Thwala, explained that the hospital was supposed to be constructed around Nyakeni, which is not far from Maliyaduma where the family resides.


“He once told me that the companies he was working for in Botswana wanted to donate some money, which would assist Swazis.
“He said his wish was that a hospital to benefit the community of Maliyaduma should be constructed. Together with his brother, they went and met the local authorities about the proposal. Due to some issues, the project was stopped,” she said.


The elderly woman was responding to questions about the E10 million donation made by her son.
Maria, who preferred to use Jeremiah’s other name, Mxolisi, said she was not surprised that Swazis had at last benefited.
