MATSAPHA – Explosives suspect Maxwell Dlamini is eagerly waiting for his results after he was allowed to sit for his examinations.

Dlamini, a third-year Commerce student, was arrested in April this year, shortly before he was expected to sit for his final exams at the University of Swaziland.

He was denied bail when he applied through his attorney, Mandla Mkhwanazi on reasons that his release was a threat to national security and it was not safe for him to be among society because people from his community were not pleased with the crime he is suspected to have committed.

In an interview early in the week Mkhwanazi confirmed that Dlamini was finally allowed to write his examinations.

"He used to be driven from the remand centre to the university and back. He would write under tight police and warders’ surveillance," he said.


Mkhwanazi said he has assigned Dlamini’s relatives to fetch the results but he has not yet received feedback on the outcome.

He said he had told them to inform him in the event they encountered problems.

The suspect’s father, Nimrod Dlamini said he went to the university on Thursday together with one of his son’s colleagues.

"I was informed that his results were not ready yet so I left my contact details after they promised to call me when the results were out," he said.

Dlamini is currently awaiting trial together with Musa Ngubeni after they were charged with Contravening the Explosives Act, a crime they are said to have committed while at Mbikwakhe.

Dlamini’s arrest resulted to an international drive dubbed the ‘Free Maxwell Dlamini’ campaign, which is calling for the immediate release of the two local explosives suspects.

The campaign, according to Coordinator Peter Ken-worthy, is aimed at pressing for the release of explosives suspects, Dlamini and Musa Ngubeni.
