Our conferences have been attended by four former Prime Ministers, Senators and current Parliamentarians. The February 2008 International Leadership Conference was attended by our current Deputy Prime Minister, Hon. Constance Simelane.
The Chairman of UPF Swaziland is Sen. Rev. Abednego M. Dlamini, and the Secretary General is Rev. Peter Wonderlik.
