MANZINI – “We’ve never known her to be dating, it’s been a closely guarded secret.”

This is what some colleagues of the Prime Minister Sibusiso Barnabas Dlamini’s fiancée Gugu Primrose Simelane, said yesterday.
News that Simelane (55) would soon be hitched to the PM did not only shock the bride-to-be’s colleagues, but it also thrilled them for more reasons than one.

This emerged during a visit to Siweni Nazarene Primary School, where Simelane is a Deputy Head teacher. When the school was visited, the bride-to-be was not found in the premises as she had reportedly left the school to an undisclosed destination.
However, her car was parked outside her house. Information gathered was that she was ferried by a government registered vehicle, which a source said was the first time they had seen it in the school premises.

Some of Simelane’s colleagues could not hide their excitement that she was the prime minister’s fiancée. All along, the colleagues said they were not aware that Simelane was dating, let alone the most important man in the country.
They added that their deputy was the most reserved person who is known to be a staunch Christian. *Nandi described Simelane as a disciplined person who respected her job so much.

She pointed out that even after news reports to the effect that she would be marrying the PM went public, the poised soon-to-be Mrs Dlamini maintained her time of arrival at school and her normal tasks. “At 7:30am she was already at the school and she participated in a planning meeting for the Grade VII Home Economics examination’s requirements. She had also marked a few notebooks, just like any other day,” said the merry colleague. Another one chipped in, stating how they were surprised by the news while excitement also engulfed them. She said no one ever suspected that Simelane was in a romantic relationship because no male visitor was ever seen at her house.

“The fact that the couple could keep a low profile for all this while is adorable. I’m honestly happy for her,” she said.
In addition, the jubilant workmates said not only were they happy that Simelane had found love in the arms of Dlamini, but also for the fact that by virtue of this, their school will finally be in the spotlight.

The teachers said they started catching emotions on Tuesday after being bombarded with questions regarding the matter through numerous phone calls which rang off the hook and WhatsApp messages from acquaintances. This was after the banns of marriage started making rounds on social media platforms.
