Peace Tours

Peace Tour Builds UPF in Swaziland

Manzini, Swaziland - The UPF peace tour in Swaziland featured delivery of peace messages at the Tums George Hotel in Manzini, Swaziland. Among the dignitaries at this well-attended gathering were traditional chiefs, tribal kings, senators, members of the national assembly, religious leaders, and NGO leaders. The opening speech was given by former Minister Mrs. Stella Lukhele, who emphasized “living for the sake of others” and family as the basic unit of everything.

The welcome address was read by Senator Bella Katamzi on behalf of the Deputy Speaker, Mrs. Trusty Gina. An extract of the speech reads: “Unless we can practice the ‘principles of peace’ in our Kingdom of Swaziland, we will continue to face the challenges of HIV/AIDS, dysfunctional families, poverty and hunger. That means that the Kingdom of Swaziland will only be in a state of 'absence of war,' but not at peace within us. I trust the peace messages we will receive today will touch the hearts and minds of all those present today.

The Chairman’s address was read by Rev. Abednego Dlamini, Senator and chairman of UPF-Swaziland. Rev. Peter Wonderlik and Rev. Youngsuk Kim delivered the peace message. Ambassador for Peace certificates were awarded to Chief Prince Kekela Dlamini (a member of the King’s Council), Senator Bella Katamzi, and tribal chief Bishop Musa Mbingo.

Among the participants there was an appreciation for the emphasis in the peace message on strengthening the family, and they pledged a new commitment to their marriages. The call for education for Ambassadors for Peace on an ongoing basis was another popular reflection. Rev. Dlamini and Rev. Wonderlik were interviewed by Swazi TV, and the event made the national news.
