LUDZIDZINI – The nation was yesterday left both puzzled and disappointed when the Sibaya agenda was set out for them.

This reality was laid out to the masses at 11:52am when Indvuna Sifiso Mashampu Khumalo informed them that the King had asked the nation to get him an assistant who could get on with the task at hand.

As a result, Khumalo, who is also the Attorney General (AG) told the nation that there had been a selected group of men and women who would make individual presentations and they would be given 10 minutes each.

He at first was not specific on who these men and women were, but all the speakers turned out to be either senators or Members of Parliament (MPs) with the exception of Swaziland Sugar Association (SSA) Chief Executive Officer Phil Mnisi and Supreme Court Judge Phesheya Dlamini. 


Khumalo said the King had assigned him, Indvuna Lusendvo Fakudze, Indvuna of Mbekelweni Themba Ginindza, the King’s Private Secretary Mbongeni Simelane and Sihle Dlamini.
He also said the King had also roped in National Secretary Nhlanhla Dlamini, who would report to him on the proceedings.

Khumalo said the main topics to be discussed by the chosen speakers included how the country could improve its political and economic situation.
He said the speakers would analyse the situation and without necessarily directing them on the topics to address, but could also make suggestions on how the country could make more revenue without reliance on the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) receipts.

He said they could also address issues of food security, including how the country could produce surplus for export and job creation issues. At this point, some of the people shouted; “akusiko loko lesitengako” (this is not what we came here for).
They said they wanted to submit the names of the people they thought should be PM.

However, Khumalo continued to state that the speakers could also address issues of the education system, in particular reference to free primary education (FPE) and social grants.
 He also said the speakers could also address the issue of the recently opened Royal Science and Technology Park and how the political system of the country could be improved.
