The Prince continued to urge parents to allow their children to come and play golf as they will get the chance to sharpen their talents in the sport. “It will be of great pleasure to see the participation of youngsters in the tournament because most of the times the young ones are left behind when it comes to such events,” he said. The patron’s words were echoed by Swaziland Epilepsy Organization’s National Director Mbusomuni Mahlalela who in his speech asked companies and captains of industry to teach about epilepsy in work places which can help in eradicating the sporadic effects that come with the stigma. “It is hard for some people to declare or to disclose that they are living with epilepsy and that is why it is sometimes hard for them to get the necessary support they need. So we hope through such events such as the Epilepsy Golf Day people will have the guts and confidence to deal with the stigma.
