KING WANTS HLANE BUGANU ARENA EXTENDED

His Majesty King Mswati III is impressed with the growing number of participants and tourists at the Buganu ceremony and wants the arena to be extended. The king was speaking at the end of this year’s ceremony at Hlane,
after being equally impressed with the skillful dancing displayed by Lutsango. His Majesty said he had observed that the numbers increased with each passing year, and advised that at this rate there would be need for a bigger arena to accommodate the large numbers. For many years, Hlane had played second fiddle to the main event at Buhleni Royal Residence, but lately the Hlane leg of the ceremony seems to be more popular. The caliber of dignitaries
who attended the ceremony at Hlane was also a level higher, as they included South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa, kaTembe King, Venda King and many other governmental dignitaries. This was noted with appreciation by the king. Lutsango brought copious buganu, vegetables and fruits as tribute to Her Majesty the Indlovukazi, who
expressed her appreciation by joining the regiments in dance and song.
