MBABANE – The Ministry of Education and Training has set the record straight that April 18, 2018 (tomorrow) is not a public holiday.

This follows a memo that was written by the ministry to all schools with regard to the public holidays which have been set aside for the much anticipated 50/50 double celebration.

The memo reflected that schools would be closed on April 17, 2018 (today) in respect of the public holidays on April 18 and 19, 2018.
Initially, the memo was informing teachers, parents and pupils about the school closing dates for the first term, which had been shifted to today in respect for the upcoming 50/50 double celebrations.

The acting Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Education and Training, Dr Sibongile Mtshali, acknowledged the mistake, however, she said the ministry had since set the record straight.
“We have corrected the dates and the dates (for the holidays) are April 19, 2018 and April 20, 2018,” she said briefly when called yesterday.

On another note, the Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs, Anthony Masilela, urged all companies, businesspeople and the public at large, who made pledges for the celebration, to fulfill their promises before deadline.
Seemingly, most Swazis committed to making the occasion a success as they have made their contributions at chiefdom level.
Some have made their contributions through their companies and organisations.
