A delegation of Anglican Communion leaders, formed and led by the Most Rev. Ndungane Njongonkulu, Primate of the Church of the Province of Southern Africa, at the invitation of the Rt. Rev. Meshack Mabuza, Bishop of Swaziland, visited Swaziland from 8-10 July 2004. The delegation met with church and civic leaders and visited the Rev. Ooma Marumbela and the AIDS ministry her parish of St. Margaret of Scotland is doing. The delegation heard "fears for the future of Swaziland and for the need for the authorities to heed the warning signs of unrest and concern in a number of areas, including the increase in HIV/AIDS, the need for the rule of law and the need for a strong and inclusive constitution, with special regard for the plight of women, those working for a more democratic government and others whose marginalisation is still evident in society. Although homogeneous in language and culture, there have been warning signs of unrest and discontent with the current systems in place, signalling a possible disaster in the near future. Calls for accountability and the urgent need for capacity building to receive aid and support were a common thread during the visit."
