PM UNPACKS HIS LOVE HISTORY IN NEW BOOK

MBABANE – Be careful of the men around your woman. The Prime Minister, Sibusiso Barnabas Dlamini, in his book titled, Inspiration:

The Personal Journey of A Prime Minister of Swaziland, says it is impossible for most men to have a friendship with a woman without it moving into a physical relationship.
The book was launched last Friday.


Dlamini states that he is not like most men although he admitted to being no saint. In the book, he describes himself as a man who respects a woman’s wish for a relationship to be platonic. He goes on to explain the word platonic to mean precisely that. He shared that he did not intend spending his time in agony wishing the relationships were otherwise.


“I am not a saint but if for any good reason a woman, whom I befriend, says, the relationship must be platonic, I have to respect that,” Dlamini says.


The premier states in Chapter 7 of the book that he had two such friendships when he was in the United States. It seems understanding women’s requests for platonic relationships helped Dlamini as he described the affairs as enjoyable and rewarding friendships. He says he had one such in 1967 with a lady named Cynthia Dodge, who was a member of the Milwaukee Church of the Nazarene where they met before he was committed to his relationship with Jane Matsebula.


Dlamini describes Dodge to be pretty, warm and friendly and invited him to her home. He says he kept an open mind about their friendship. He also says they slept in separate bedrooms although he longed for the relationship to progress into something more encouraging.
