Queen Mother dances up a storm
By MKHULISI MAGONGO - SWAZI TIMES -23-Jul-2009
MLAWULA – Ligcabho Lamhlekazi, Correctional Services and sibhaca dancers, got the Queen Mother dancing up a storm yesterday.
This was when she celebrated the birth of King Sobhuza II, which also marked a public holiday.
The Queen Mother was so taken by the traditional dances, that she left her seat and joined in dancing various songs together with Balondolozi (King Sobhuza’s wives), who formed part of the guests.
Addressing the gathering, the Queen Mother said this day was just an outing and was special because it was a day when one of the country’s greatest leaders was born. The event was organised by the Ministry of Tourism and Environmental Affairs, whose Minister Macford Sibandze was the MC of the day.
The Indlovukazi was in a jovial mood on the day as she even joked, saying since the day was so special, journalists would put aside their cameras and join in the dancing. “I am happy to be here today because this day is great to me.
“I am also happy at the fact that we are not only celebrating the late King Sobhuza II’s birthday, but enjoying the cultural activities which the king also loved so much,” said the Queen Mother, much to ululation of those in attendance. After dancing, the guests and members of the public were treated to sumptuous meals.
