IMPORTANCE OF TOLERANCE

Sir,

It gives me a great pleasure to be given an opportunity to share my views about the fraternal solutions for the people of Swaziland.
The people of Swaziland need to come together and work on continued efforts to create themselves a new a better way of life.


We are facing most of the problems that were faced by our grandfathers back in the days of colonisation.
Our hopes and aspirations which we share derive from the same essential beliefs in the nature and destiny of men.
It is thus inevitably true that there should exist between those two great people, strong and lasting ties of friendship and understanding.
The two great people I am talking about are the banned political parties and the current ruling system called Tinkhundla.


The manner in which we as representatives of the people have long been a matter for learned discussion among philosophers and political analysts.
The world of the developing nation is creating new problems for the scholars to ponder, as new societies are emerging to deal with the complexities and explosive questions of national and institutional governments.


Is a representative responsible only to a constituency or to the particular group at which he has been chosen or appointed?
The answer is a big no!


However, it is happening in Swaziland and there is a need to announce an end to it because it is the reason why the country has not reached the level of development that is expected. Obstacles to sectional, cultural and political affiliation often pose a major obstacle to national development. In their expanded sense, as narrowly national and ideological interest, they threaten unity and progress.


Democracy is believed to be the only system which can survive because it accepts or is prepared to tolerate dissent and criticism.
It accepts these as useful and any case inevitable aspects of all social and political relations.


The tolerant of dissent and criticisms within a government proceeds from a single essential premise; that the government exists to serve the people generally, government servants, whether designated as representative or not, have trust to work for the general welfare.
The same trusts exist among member States affiliated to international organisations.


The members of such organisations must adhere to some tacit or expressed conception of international welfare.
As I extend my hand of universal brotherhood to all, without regard to race or political affiliation, I call upon all Swazis to be tolerant.


This is the time for the people of Swaziland to come together and work for their own government that will have their interests at heart.
If we allow the views and contributions of all citizens regardless of their political affiliations we will definitely achieve First World Status.

Would legalizing dagga be a step in the right direction?
