Speaking to this Swaziland News on Friday, the Prince first thanked this editor for his reporting that ended misleading information suggesting that he was death, at the time when he was treated at Siteki Referral Hospital. 

“I’m glad that while in hospital you wrote and informed the Nation that I am alive at the time when misleading information was circulating suggesting that I am dead. It’s very unfortunate that people have adopted this act of disseminating misleading information about people who are sick without considering how relatives of those people feel” he said.

When asked to share views on how the country can intensify the fight against the virus, the Prince urged eMaswati to work together in the war against the virus.

“What is of paramount importance is that every citizen should take the responsibility to protect himself or herself, once you protect yourself, automatically your are protecting others” he said.
