His Majesty King Mswati III delivering his speech


His Majesty King Mswati III has applauded Sincemphetelo Motor Vehicle Accident Fund (MVA) for staying true to their mandate by not only rehabilitating and compensating survivors of road accidents, but raising awareness in terms
of road safety measures as well as supporting other stakeholders in the prevention of traffic accidents. The King was speaking on Wednesday at Mavuso Trade and Exhibition Centre during Ingwenyama Cup prize presentation where
he said when MVA was established in 1991 its core mandate was to rehabilitate and compensate survivors of road accidents occurring within the boundaries of Eswatini, but over the years the organization has seen it befitting to fight against the rise of accidents by engaging in different campaigns that create awareness with road safety measures which could be taken to avoid road accidents. His Majesty also shared with the audience his indebtedness of seeing that the medical facility which was launched in July last year was now open to all claimants that would
have been sent to neighboring countries at exorbitant costs. His Majesty challenged MVA saying, “While we commend this milestone, such should be complemented by measures to increase accessibility to fund core services, more so to
the marginalized road users and accidents survivors,” imploring the fund to look into increasing access through the digital space as well as other technological options. He urged the nation at large to make use of the funds of the mobile office which travels around the country with the aim of easing access to the funds services. His Majesty emphasized that MVA should ensure that they explore more strategic partnerships which will see cost reduction due to distances travelled by claimants. On another note the King went on to say the blending of sports and culture gave the country a unique identity while promoting and preserving the country’s cultural heritage. In conclusion, His Majesty praised the winners of both culture and soccer categories, reassuring those who did not make it to not
give up. “They would be in a better position to win in the next edition,”
