His Majesty King Mswati III arrived safely in Bulawayo, the second major city of Zimbabwe, as he concluded his three-day State visit to that country.

The King, who is accompanied by Inkhosikati Make LaGija, has a tight programme in Bulawayo which involves meeting business leaders and touring agricultural projects. He was met at the Joshua Nkomo Airport by high ranking members of the Zimbabwean cabinet, parliament and business community. His Majesty proceeds to Victoria Falls on Sunday where he will meet Heads of State and government for the COMESA Summit. One of the areas that were on the King’s programme was a tour of a farm that belongs to veterans. Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Lutfo Dlamini, who toured the project, said the Kingdom of Swaziland was looking forward to strengthening cooperation with Zimbabwe in the quest to ensure food security.

He said it was the wish of His Majesty King Mswati III and President Robert Mugabe to ensure that the countries work together to ensure the production of enough food to feed the populace and also export to other nations. “The issue of food security is a high priority to government and the nation at large. Our nations have to work together in developing strategies to address the issue of food security. We have to address the challenges which were largely due to a drought spell that has battered our countries for close to two decades,” he said He urged the private sector to work hand in hand with government on strategies to enhance agricultural output.” Minister Dlamini said technical experts must be on hand to assist farmers in making choices of crops which can withstand the weather conditions prevailing in the different regions of the countries
