Swazi arrested in Germany is back!
MANZINI – The Swazi woman who was arrested in Germany is back in Swa-ziland, and she is already back at work.
This is despite the fact that Zandile Ndlela has been in Germany for at least a month, where she was detained after being found to be in possession of a dubious visa.
She was alleged to have been on her way to Canada, but asked the Germany authorities for asylum when she was questioned about her visa.
Ndlela refused to comment yesterday when found at her work station, at the Kwaluseni Inkhundla.
"I will not comment on anything that you will ask me about. I do not want to speak," said Ndlela.
However, sources say she returned to Swaziland last week.
According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mtiti Fakudze, Ndlela was arrested in Germany when her visa stated that she was destined for Canada.
Her husband, last week, said her trip was arranged by a Manzini based agency.
The husband alleged that the agency had not been cooperative ever since Ndlela was arrested.
Minister Fakudze said he was awaiting a report from Germany on how the court case against Ndlela ended.
"If she is back in the country, it means the case has been finalised in Germany. What I have been trying to find out is how the case was concluded; I am still waiting for feedback from our office in Germany to get the details," he said.
The minister also disclosed that the ministry had requested the police to investigate the agency which allegedly facilitates the movement of Swazis to overseas countries.
It was revealed in earlier reports that Ndlela was supposed to be back in Swaziland to resume work on May 5 2012.
In a previous interview, the Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Public Service, Evart Madlopha, said a civil servant would need to have communicated with his/her immediate bosses if he/she had failed to return to work on an agreed date.
