❖ Ladies and gentlemen it gives me utmost pleasure to stand before you again as
the Mayor of the City of Mbabane. I recall that during the 2018 edition of the
Mayor’s Cup I stood before you and proclaimed that this annual get-together of
golf players helps Council to alleviate the suffering of poverty stricken families in
our society.
❖ I am excited to report to you that, through this initiative, the tournament has already
made a difference in the life of a family that will soon be the excited owners of a
two bedroomed house at Mncitsini. As we speak the structure is at 70 percent
completion and Council will direct all proceeds that will be raised through this
initiative towards the completion of the house. The destitute family of Gogo
Hleziphi Nkambule, were it not for your generosity and kindness, would have no
prospects of being owners of a two bedroom house.
❖ Council decided to host the Mayor’s Cup even though we are still battling with the
devastating impact of Covid-19 because Council has seen first hand the economic
strain all households have been subjected to. Council completed an indigent study
during the peak of Covid-19 enforced lockdowns and we found that about 700
individuals in Mbabane were in need of urgent food aid. That, ladies and
gentlemen, gives every resident a clear picture of the state of affairs in our

community and also puts the responsibility firmly at every business and corporate’s
door-step to help our residents.
❖ I am confident that next year, CEO and your Management team, this tournament
will be bigger and will accommodate more teams because I have been told that
the announcement of the calendar date generated quite a buzz among the golf
and business community.
❖ Ladies and gentlemen, as I conclude my remarks, allow me to officially recognise
our sponsors who have helped Council to make this event the huge success it is.
