The absolute monarch of Eswatini, King Mswati III ordered amidst demonstrations and pro-democracy rallies. The state cracked down on the political parties and civilians who wants representation. In middle of all that as the soldiers was on the streets and the authorities was going from door-to-door. They were arresting and detaining the leaders of pro-democracy activists and leaders of the political parties.
At that time… the King had the time to think of this:
“LOBAMBA: Five(5) people were brutally shot and killed at Lobamba Mashibhini by King Mswati’s security forces for alleged ritual purposes in the midst of the political crisis. This is contained in an electronic evidence sourced from the Ludzidzini Royal Palace that further exposes details of other highly sensitive killings that were planned against leaders of the pro-democracy movement including Siphofaneni MP Mduduzi ‘Magawugawu’ Simelane. An independent investigation by this Swaziland News uncovered that on 03 July 2021 at around 1815hours, about eight(8) soldiers and six(6) police officers from Lobamba Police Station were deployed at Mashibhini to brutally kill the citizens as part of a ritual operation to urgently collect human blood that was to be mixed with muti known as ‘Mahlabasihlangane’” (Zweli Martin Dlamini – ‘REVEALED: How King Mswati ordered security officers to shoot five people at Lobamba Mashibhini for ritual purposes’ 03.08.2021, Swaziland News).
This just proves everything wrong when a King can extra judicial kill his own citizens for a ritual. That one man can decide life or death. The King in his authority just settled their lives and decided that these citizens was useful for a ritual. The King needed their blood to do a ritual.
This is really sick of a man. The man selfishly killed people to do a ritual. That shouldn’t happen anywhere. This is ice-cold murder. The plot is revealed and the man behind the scheme is in fine print. His walking away from without any sort of trial or judgement against him. Since his the absolute monarch. That’s his get-out-of-jail-free-card, which is astonishing.
This is demi-god like. That a man can do this and order these sorts of schemes. This shouldn’t be allowed anywhere. These civilians didn’t ask to partake or not. I understand why he did at the public gathering and the “dialogue” said all the citizens was his. Because he clearly believes so and he believes he has the right to chose between life and death. That is the sort of King he is.
King Mswati III shows his despotic tendencies and his irrational leadership. As he can easily use force, kill and destroy his enemies. Heck, he can just kill someone for any given reason. That is the sort of Head of State he is. That is a tyrant and nothing else. Peace.
