IT GIVES ME IMMENSE PLEASURE TO LAUNCH THIS VERY IMPORTANT EVENT MARKING THE BEGINNING OF A TELEVISION AWARENESS PROGRAMME ON MY MINISTRY’S RESPONSIBILITIES AS WELL AS LAUNCHING THE 2014-18 MINISTRY’S STRATEGIC PLAN. I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND MY UTMOST GRATITUDE TO THE STVA CEO FOR HIS PRESENCE AS I AM VERY MUCH AWARE THAT HE HAS MADE A HUGE SACRIFICE TO SET ASIDE THIS TIME TO ATTEND THE LAUNCH AGAINST HIS MANY OTHER COMPETING DEMANDS.

MY MINISTRY HAS A DAUNTING ASSIGNMENT TO ENSURE THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, USE AND MANAGEMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES IN THE PROVISION OF ADEQUATE SERVICES IN WATER, MINING, ENERGY, SURVEYING, MAPPING, CONVEYANCING, REGISTRATION OF REAL RIGHTS IN LAND AND VALUATION TO THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTOR IN A TRANSPARENT MANNER FOR THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC BENEFIT OF THE KINGDOM OF SWAZILAND.

IN FOSTERING HIS MAJESTY’S FIRST WORLD STATUS VISION BY 2022, MY MINISTRY HAS SINCE DEVELOPED A STRATEGIC PLAN COVERING THE PERIOD OF 2014-2018 THAT SEEKS TO ENHANCE EFFECTIVE SERVICE DELIVERY TO THE NATION THROUGH INNOVATIVE BUSINESS MODELS AND EFFICIENT MANAGEMENT OF RESOURCES.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS STRATEGIC PLAN HAS BEEN A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT BY THE MINISTRY’S PROACTIVE EXECUTIVE MANAGEMENT, HEADS OF DEPARTMENTS (HODS) AND MINISTRY STAFF. I THEREFORE EXTEND MY MOST PROFOUND GRATITUDE TO THE PRINCIPAL SECRETARY FOR HIS LEADERSHIP, GUIDANCE AND DEDICATION THROUGHOUT THE STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT CYCLE. THE PRINCIPAL SECRETARY HAS CLEARLY DISPLAYED THE MINISTRY’S CORE VALUES SUCH AS; COMMITMENT, PROFESSIONALISM AND RESPONSIBILITY THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS. I FURTHER GRACIOUSLY ACKNOWLEDGE THE OFFICERS IN ALL THE MINISTRY’S DEPARTMENTS WHO COMMITTED THEMSELVES DURING THE PREPARATION OF THE STRATEGY DOCUMENT.

IN LINE WITH THE STRATEGIC PLAN, MY MINISTRY WILL EMBARK ON A TELEVISION AWARENESS CAMPAIGN WITH THE AIM TO EDUCATE THE NATION AT LARGE ON THE MINISTRY’S MANDATE AND RESPONSIBILITIES IN ORDER TO ENSURE THAT THE NATION IS FULLY AWARE OF THE MINISTRY’S MANDATE AND RESPONSIBILITIES AND HOW TO BETTER ACCESS THE SERVICES OFFERED BY THE MINISTRY.

IT IS ON THIS PREMISE THAT THE MINISTRY WILL SOON CONDUCT A TELEVISION AWARENESS PROGRAMME IN COLLABORATION WITH THE SWAZILAND TELEVISION AUTHORITY.   

ON THIS NOTE AND ON BEHALF OF THE GOVERNMENT OF SWAZILAND, I WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS MY SINCERE APPRECIATION TO THE STVA CEO AND HIS STAFF WHO HAS WORKED TIRELESSLY IN GUIDING MY MINISTRY APPROPRIATELY DURING THE PLANNING STAGE FOR THE AWARENESS PROGRAMME AND FOR HOSTING US HERE TODAY. LASTLY, MY SINCERE GRATITUDE GOES TO THE PRINCIPAL SECRETARY AND ENTIRE MINISTRY STAFF FOR THEIR COMMITMENT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE STRATEGIC PLAN OF 2014-2018 AND ALSO FOR PLANNING THE AWARENESS TELEVISION PROGRAMME.

IT GIVES ME GREAT PLEASURE TO NOW OFFICIALLY LAUNCH THE MINISTRY’S AWARENESS PROGRAMME THEMED “TEMCEBO WEMVELO NEMANDLA”.


THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU.
