Eswatini: A lawyer becomes “person-non grata” for defending the MPs who is fighting for democracy…

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.

Eswatini: No mercy from the King

I therefore advise you that as you go about your very important duties, you go out in full alert and in readiness to respond effectively and decisively against any criminal elements and you must meet them eye for an eye” – King Mswati III (05.08.2022).

The absolute monarch King Mswati III was on Friday again showing his sinister and vicious side. The ones that been following the current affairs in Eswatini shouldn’t be shocked by this. The authorities and the state has retaliated and ensured the ones who has defied his reign got to pay. That’s happened to students, activists and others who demonstrated. The authorities has swiftly and violently stopped demonstrations against his tyranny. However, the King resides on the throne and won’t relent, as he as absolute power and there is no representative democracy in the Kingdom.

So, that the King tells the Police Officers of the Kingdom to answer with an “eye for an eye”. Just show how vengeful the King is. Also, with that in mind he wants the authorities to act with retribution. That is very clear here and no one should be surprised.

We know the Sibaya’s that been held only been to buy “peace” and give the King time. As it sets a tone and the international pressure cease when he holds a peaceful display. Nevertheless, that is just buying him time to strike back at the parties and there organizers behind the demonstrations. There are plenty of peoples who wants elected representatives. Because, at the moment everyone with an office or a ministry is hand-picked by him. They are all there on the blessing of him and not because the public wanted them there.

It is a merciless man and a leader who only see himself. A monarch should see his whole kingdom and be a character that is unifying the kingdom. Instead his a monarch that sparks conflict and attacks his opponents. If King Mswati III had listened and opened up for a representative democracy. He could have been beloved and been respected.

However, he chose the path of total tyranny and using violence to stay in power. The most despicable way of clinging on to power. He can order the army and the police force whenever he deems fit. The King can take lives and even do that in rituals if he wants. That’s the sort of man he is and he thrives in it.

King Mswati isn’t a noble man or a just ruler. No, he will brutalize and ensure the demise of the ones who stands in his way. That’s why people has lost their lives, their careers and such under his reign.

So that the King says the Police Officers should answer the public with an “eye for an eye”. Is just showing his understanding and how the King operates. This is the sort of system and how he keeps his power alive.

A tyrant needs to enforce the tyranny and that’s obvious in Eswatini. Peace.

Eswatini: PM Dlamini calling ‘freedom fighters’ – ‘terrorists’ and it is condescending …

Government takes this moment to strongly condemn the senseless killing of State security officers as well as the sporadic arson and terrorist attacks on public and private property, perpetuated by unknown criminals hiding behind veiled motives. The safety of emaSwati is now under threat as this group of criminals continues to wage a senseless assault on our people. This spate of crime and its effects has now reached a level in which it has, and will, affect the lives of all emaSwati in one way or another. It is clear, therefore, that these attacks are not just on Government or any individual company, but on all emaSwati. Those behind these evil acts are terrorists hell-bent on condemning our people to a state of fear and never-ending cycle of poverty. There can be no justification of such attacks, particularly when we already have a clear laid down pathway towards reconciling our differences. It is clear to all of us now that the people behind these attacks are not for the betterment of emaSwati or a better Eswatini. We will do everything to protect the lives of emaSwati, and to restore peace and order in our beautiful Kingdom. These criminals and their enablers will face the full might of the law. We are already out in full force conducting investigations” – Prime Minster Cleopas Sipho Dlamini (27.06.2022).

In Mbabane there is only one master and King, the absolute ruler King Mswati III. The brutality and use of force against dissidents and freedom fighters should be well-known. The King has forced himself on the public and continues to appoint his leaders on the people.

While the people and citizens are protesting and revolting against the King. The King decided not to allow the people to elect their own. We know that the King sees the citizens as his subjects and nothing else. That is easy to know that the King doesn’t value the people. When he even at one point used several of citizens as an offering for a ritual. Therefore, the King will easily get his appointee’s to call dissidents ‘terrorists’.

That’s what has happened today. No one should be shocked by this. It just shows the sentiment of the King and his court. They are just proving it now with the latest Prime Minister Press Conference today.

We know that the people, the banned political parties and civil society who is working for elected representatives, which have been illegal since 1973. That’s why the people are fighting and now they are called terrorist. We know the King doesn’t respect the people or the will of the people. He feels they are damaging his calm.

He only calls for ‘Sibaya’ to get the recognition of the international community and look like he cares about the people. While that is only to buy time. As he goes after the student leaders, opposition leaders and who else who is challenging his reign.

People should read this little piece of statement from the PM. Just so they know how the leadership and the appointees of the King operates. They are targeting the citizens who just wants people to elect their own leaders. The King is using his authority and no stopping of the police brutality. Neither is the any stop of the relentless usage of force.

People should be warned that the King and the PM has no heart here. When they are warning the people and calling freedom fighters for terrorists. That says it all.

The King and his men should know they cannot kill them all or detained them all. Because, that’s not how it works. Sooner or later, something got to give and that should be the absolute monarch. Peace.
