MBABANE – His Majesty King Mswati III is expected to commission Ingatja to fetch the sacred shrubs (lusekwane) this afternoon.

This, after the dancing of the Little Incwala which took place in all the royal residences. The Little Incwala started at Ludzidzini Royal Residence before the Monarch proceeded to the other residences.  Yesterday, the King returned with the Little Incwala from Buhleni Royal Residence to Ngabezweni where he is expected to commission Ingatja. It has not been established when the main Incwala would be danced but the ministry in charge of cultural events said the main Incwala holiday was likely to be announced today.

“The main Incwala holiday has not been communicated but we are hoping that the date will be announced today,” said Minister Princess Tsandzile whose ministry is in charge of national events. Ideally, the main Incwala holiday is announced by the Minister of Home Affairs on the day of the commissioning of Ingatja. Normally, the main Incwala is danced four days after the commissioning of Ingatja. The fourth day after the commissioning of Ingatja which is expected today will be on Friday.
