Personal details
Born (1942-05-15) 15 May 1942

Barnabas Sibusiso Dlamini (born 15 May 1942) is the Prime Minister of Swaziland. He was Prime Minister from 1996 to 2003 and has held the position again from October 2008. He has now been appointed for the third time in the ninth parliament[1] Dlamini was Minister of Finance from 1984 to 1993. He was also an executive director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).[2] From 1996 to 2003, he was Prime Minister, and in 2003 he became a member of King Mswati III's advisory council.[3][4] Dlamini was a candidate, backed by the Swazi government, for the position of Chairperson of the African Union Commission in early 2008.[4][5][6][7] The government withdrew his candidacy out of solidarity with the Southern African Development Community (SADC) so that SADC could present a single candidate.[7]

Following the Mario Masuku, the President of the People's United Democratic Movement, said that Dlamini "was not appointed on merit but on his level of allegiance to the king".[3] Dlamini was sworn in by Chief Justice Richard Banda on 23 October 2008. He took the oath of office both in English and in SiSwati.[8]
