Incwala is drawing closer. His Majesty King Mswati III has joined Libutfo from Shiselweni in dance at Mbangweni Royal Residence.
His Majesty is expected to remain at Mbangweni for a few days before proceeding to Buhleni Royal residence, where he is expected to disperse tingatja to cut the secret shrub (lusekwane) at Esikhaleni Selusekwane in Nhlambeni.
As the main incwala is drawing closer, His Majesty is expected to leave Mbangweni anytime soon.
Traditionally, there are no set dates for the Incwala ceremony but these are astrologically detected by the traditionalists as per the movements of the moon.
