SPTC AND SWAZI MED PARTNERSHIP LAUNCH

The partnership between the Swaziland Post and Telecommunications Corporation (SPTC) and SwaziMed was officially implemented at Ward 12 of the Mbabane Government Hospital in the spirit of the 2017 SPTC Charity Cup Competition-Yam’Nawe. This partnership is valued at E150 000.00 (One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Emalangeni only). Ward 12 of this hospital is the same place where the official launch of this year’s edition of the Yam’ Nawe Charity Cup Competition was launched. This ward was adopted by the telecommunications company after a plea on behalf of His Majesty’s Government by the Honourable Minister of Health, Minister Sibongile Ndlela-Simelane to SPTC as she asked the organisation to share its spirit of charity to the Mbabane Government Hospital.

First to address the audience was the Managing Director (MD) of SPTC, Mr Petros Dlamini who highlighted the telecommunication’s company’s excitement of being partners with the football family, beneficiaries and most recently, SwaziMed. “As SPTC, we are very much exited to be partners with other stakeholders in our corporate social investment (CSI) initiatives and in particular in the spirit of Yam’ Nawe Competition”, said the MD. What also exites SPTC is the fulfillment of the Honourable Minister’s dream. This E150 000.00 worth of partnership will go towards the maintenance and provision of services to ward 12 of the Mbabane Government Hospital, and what is also good for the hospital is that this ward is being adapted by SPTC in the long-run period.

In conclusion, the MD also invited the nation to watch all the SPTC Charity Cup matches as this year’s edition will be bigger and better. “ Let me also take this opportunity to invite the nation to the Somhlolo National Stadium where the matches will be played, to go entertain themselves as this year’s match days will be family days”, he said. This year’s edition will have a curtain raiser match which will be a Manzini derby between Manzini Sundowns FC and Moneni Prates FC, on Sunday; 20th august 2017. The main event will be a week later on Sunday, 27th August 2017 where Mbabane Highlanders FC, Mbabane Swallows FC, Royal Leopards FC and the winner of the Manzini derby will be in action.

Also making his remarks in this prestigious event, was the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of SwaziMed who is also the Vice President of the NFAS, Mr. Peter Simelane who highlighted SwaziMed’s commitment in collaborating with other organisations when it comes to health related issues. “SwaziMed felt the need in collaborating with giant organisations like SPTC as this is a noble initiative”, he said. The CEO of SwaziMed also urged other organisations to come on board and collaborate with SPTC in such charity initiatives.

This historic event was also witnessed by Vice President of the NFAS who is also a Senior Medical Doctor at the Mbabane Government Hospital; Dr. Comfort Shongwe and the Premier League of Swaziland (PLS) Chief Operations Officer (COO); Mr Petros Vilakati amongst others.
