HIS Majesty King Mswati III has told South African First Lady Thobeka Madiba-Zuma that Swaziland has placed strong emphasis on health.

The King was speaking yesterday to Madiba-Zuma who is in the county on a visit. She had paid a courtesy call to His Majesty at Lozitha Royal Palace on arrival yesterday.

The King said he was delighted to learn that the South African First Lady has dedicated herself to health issues. “We recently held the Smart Partnership Dialogue where health issues were on top of the agenda.We are happy that you are here to also have talks on how you can all work together to achieve a common goal on health matters,” said the King.

The First Lady said: “I will be having meetings with my local counterparts to see how best we can work together to solve the problems we face in the health sector. I must say that the challenges we facing are almost similar so we need to work together if we are to solve the problems,” she said.

She will today visit places like Ngwenya Glass, Swazi Candles and also witness the sending off of thousands of maidens to cut the reed.
