Tight security at reed dance
By Nomfundo Dlamini - SWAZI OBSERVER-26-Aug-2009
Imbali yemaSwati leader Nothando Nhlengethwa has assured parents of safety of their children during the week long reed dance ceremony.
Nothando revealed that security measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of Imbali.
Speaking during an interview at Ludzidzini Royal Residence during the registration of Imbali, Nothando said since this event always coincides with the Swaziland International Trade Fair, the maidens then tend to divert from going to cut the reed and go straight to the Trade Fair, security measures have been put in place to make sure that this does not happen.
‘We can assure parents that security forces will be out in their numbers this year t ensure the safety of Imbali, what we have done this year is that we have asked emakhosatana and tindvuna from each and every chiefdom to prepare data of each and every member of imbali, which will be used o a daily basis of this event to ensure that the members did infact arrive at the reed dance and are participating fully,” said Nothando.
