He was addressing some Mfuwe residents who went to bid farewell to him at Mfuwe International Airport yesterday.
King Mswati said President Banda has a heart for Zambians because he always talks about the desire to improve their living standards.
“President Banda is committed to all of you. All he talks about is you, the people of Zambia. Continue supporting him because he can only achieve his desires to better your lives with your support,” he said.
King Mswati said he was happy with his visit to Zambia and enjoyed game viewing with members of his family and the Zambian first family.
He said he is happy with the developments he has seen in the National park because caution has been taken to ensure that the natural heritage is preserved.
“Nature is a gift from God and so even the young people must grow up preserving it, especially that people come from afar to come and see the wonderful wildlife that you have in this country,” he said.
On the piece of land he was given by the chiefs in North Western Province, King Mswati said he will be sending a delegation from Swaziland to come and see what sort of development can be put up.
He said the delegation will also look at economic activities the two countries can embark on.
The King thanked President Banda and the people of Zambia for the hospitality that he received during his stay in the country.
He said he looks forward to reciprocating the gesture when President Banda visits that country.
Meanwhile , President Banda has thanked the people of Eastern Province for the good reception that he and King Mswati received.
He also thanked the MMD in the province for its continued support to his leadership.
Mr Banda said the MMD is a strong party as it can be found in all corners of the country.
He said MMD must show that it is a strong party and that it is an organisation for all Zambians regardless of origin.
“I also want to thank all the chiefs that came over to Chichele to meet us, and we all enjoyed watching the dancers both from here and Swaziland,” Mr Banda said.
He assured the people that their farming inputs will be distributed in good time so that they can grow enough food to feed the country , as well as for export to neighbouring countries.
Earlier, Eastern Province Minister Isaac Banda assured the President of continued support to his leadership by the people of the province.
He said the province is honoured to have received King Mswati as their guest.
