Friday, 27th March, 2020

MBABANE:Mbongwa Dlamini, the President of the Swaziland National Association of Teachers(SNAT) has called upon all pupils and parents who interacted with their member Nkosingiphile Seyama to consider testing for the Coronavirus after the teacher tested positive.

Seyama is the teacher who voluntarily confessed to have tested positive to the Coronavirus after he travelled to Durban in February 2020 as confirmed by Secretary General Sikelela Dlamini in a press statement on Friday, he is currently admitted at Lubombo Referral Hospital.

 The President praised their member for being a responsible citizen by declaring to have tested positive so that all those who interacted with him can urgently go for testing and seek medical treatment.

“This is what we were trying to avoid when we asked government to close schools as a matter of urgency, imagine all the pupils who interacted with the teacher and their parents? All these people must now be tested and be quarantined.” said the SNAT President.

In a press statement released on Friday, SNAT Secretary General Sikelela Dlamini said their member whom he referred as Comrade Uncle J was currently receiving treatment, he thanked him for being a responsible soldier of the movement by openly declaring that he had tested positive.

“As we speak, he is admitted at the Lubombo Referral Hospital where he is receiving treatment. We are well aware of course that all of us who were mingling with him, as he is a sociable Cde, we need to go for testing as well. Since Comrade Uncle J is in a very clinically stable condition, we also hope that his stay in hospital shall be short and very soon he will be discharged. It is our ardent hope as well that those of us who are still lining up for testing, shall be found to be negative. This too, shall pass and we shall prevail. As the SNAT NEC, we therefore make a call to all our members, our children, our relatives and the wider Swazi Society to stand firm and United as we fight this war. We need to pray harder for the entire human race in General and for the Swazi populace in particular” he said.
