“The Governemnt of Eswatini has declared Bacede Mabuza and Mthandeni Dube’s SA-based lawyer Sicelo Mngomezulu an illegal immigrant. This is happening at a time when Mngomezulu had organised an event for maidens which was scheduled to be held at Hosea” (Times of Eswatini, 01.09.2022).
The King is never resting in Eswatini. The Kingdom of Eswatini don’t want any pushback or any sort of activities not acknowledged or accepted without the consent of the King. King Mswati III is the absolute power and his orders rule the nation.
No one should be shocked that this is happening. The King has no issues to order extra judicial killings, and punitive actions against students and people who has revolted against his reign. This is why this is the sort of behaviour, which is to be expected by him.
The Kingdom of Eswatini is only there to serve the King. The government and the authorities are only there for him. Nothing else matters. The appointed MPs that has defied him… they are clearly in trouble and will only be left of the hook in exile. The King wants to show power and make it even harder for the MPs to defend themselves.
Even if the King is alone and the sole proprietor of the state. There is no checks- and balances now. He can direct, send a word or a directive and after that people are gone. This King don’t care and will only hold public functions to silence the neighbours bickering or interfering.
This person non-grata is clear as day. Being banned from entering or allowed to defend the MPs is obvious. That’s to weaken the MPs case and their ability to answer for their “crimes” in court. We all know they “offended the Don”.
His Majesty isn’t forgiving, as an ancient overlord and tyrant. He will come with retribution and show his force to anyone who disobeys. That’s the sort of a man the King is. The MPs are clearly not getting proper help or any sort defence. This is the will of the King and his just signalling that to the people. He will not budge and he don’t care. Especially, for the ones foolishly enough trying to challenge him.
He will bury you and never let you see the light of day. That’s the actions of this king. A man who has to show it with violence, oppressive behaviour and a total destruction of rights. That’s what he does and this is the path that he has chosen to take.
These two MPs will not see freedom or liberty in a long while. If ever again really… this King will not relent until they possibly asks for forgiveness for their transgression against him. Peace.
