His Excellency The Prime Minister of Swaziland

Dr. Sibusiso Barnabas Dlamini

His Excellency Dr. Barnabas Sibusiso Dlamini (born 15 May 1942) is Prime Minister of Swaziland. He was Prime Minister from 1996 to 2003 and has held the position again since October 2008. Dr. Dlamini was Minister of Finance from 1984 to 1993. He was also an executive director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).  From 1996 to 2003, he was Prime Minister, and in 2003 he became a member of His Majesty King Mswati III's advisory council. Dr. Dlamini was a candidate, backed by the Swazi government, for the position of Chairperson of the African Union Commission in early 2008. The government withdrew his candidacy out of solidarity with the Southern African Development Community (SADC) so that SADC could present a single candidate. Following the September 2008 parliamentary election, Dr. Dlamini was reappointed as Prime Minister by His Majesty King Mswati III on 16 October 2008.
