MANZINI – The Prime Minister Sibusiso Barnabas Dlamini, has heaped praises on the Swaziland Posts and Telecommunications Corporation’s (SPTC) Trust Fund for the work it does in communities.


Dlamini spoke through the Minister of Public Service Owen Nxumalo during the official launch of this year’s Swazi Telecom Charity Cup at Mavuso Sports and Exhibition Centre yesterday. He said the work done by the Charity Cup ticked many key boxes, including training and motivating players and spectators by stimulating a strong sense of goodwill and care.


“We have recognised that the contribution SPTC makes through the Trust Fund in developing communities is great and contributes immensely in improving the lives of many Swazis. We are very appreciative of such efforts as we have been told that this year alone the SPTC Charity Cup Trust Fund will distribute close to E860 000 to different charities,” he said.


He added that the Charity Cup was significant in the sense that it raised money each year that it held in the Trust Fund, with the funds later mobilised for socially important projects. 


“We have been told that no less than 70 per cent of the gate collections from the Charity Cup games goes into the Trust Fund. In addition, we are aware that SPTC itself makes a substantial budget contribution to the Fund,” he said.
The prime minister ended by wishing the PLS and SPTC well as he officially launched this year’s tournament.
