MATSAPHA – Kuwait Prime Minister Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah jetted in the country yesterday afternoon with a high powered delegation.
The premier who was welcomed by Prime Minister Sibusiso Barnabas Dlamini with the Cabinet ministers, royalty, parliamentarians, chief executives and members of the public, is expected to meet His Majesty King Mswati III today.
He touched the Swazi soil on a large jet at exactly 5:15pm.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Lutfo Dlamini said the premier was here on official business to meet business people as he also had a delegation of businessmen. “Actually, they will be meeting with the business people at Royal Villas tonight (last night) before calling it a day in preparation for the meeting with the King. He is then expected to meet the King at Royal Villas tomorrow (today),” Dlamini explained.
Asked further on the importance of his visit, Dlamini said they were also here to discuss the possibilities of opening an embassy in Swaziland. “The Prime Minister, as you saw, is here with top business gurus from his country and they say they want to strengthen business ties with us. So this trip is vital in a sense that the country is benefitting from the coming here of the premier. Opportunities of businesses being opened here are inevitable,” added Dlamini.
The premier also arrived with a long list of members of the press who almost brought the airport to a halt as they were everywhere.
