World Scout Parliamentary Union Africa Chapter (WSPU) has appointed Senator Princess Ntombiyenkosi as the second vice president during a meeting held at Parliament in the Kingdom of Eswatini.

During the handover of the appointment letter to the Princess, the southern Zone Co-ordinator Brigadier Ezekiel Malenya described Senator Princess as a self-driven servant of the youth who has brought transformation into the Eswatini Scout Association. Brigadier Malenya announced that Eswatini will be hosting the World Scouts parliamentary union Africa conference in November. Princess Senator encouraged Members of Parliament to join the World Scout Parliamentary Union to support the youth in their respective countries. The appointment is a motivation to the SADC region which will see tremendous growth in scouting and resource mobilisation to countries like Botswana, Lesotho and Eswatini.

It was attended by Members of Parliament from Kenya, Eswatini, and Lesotho amongst others. WSPU is an independent association which unites scout-oriented parliamentarians from all over the world and brings them into closer contact with the World Scout movement. The main purpose of the WSPU is to strengthen the national scout organisations, at the national level, and support world scouting at the international level, through the work of parliamentarians. It also aims to encourage the establishment of the National Scout Parliamentary Association (NSPA) under the parliamentary framework, with a firm belief in the effectiveness of non-formal education. The WSPU came into existence when 60 parliamentarians from 22 countries across five continents gathered for the Constituent Assembly in Seoul, the Republic of Korea, in 1991. As its objectives are fully shared by the World Scout Committee, the WSPU was granted a consultation status therefrom.
