ESWATINI MONARCHY IN DANGER

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Sir,

Mnguni waseGudu; this is wisdom and unfortunately only a few would understand. In you I find company, I thought I was alone. The first thing that we need to understand is that blacks are the chosen nation. Until we learn to understand that we shall always worship the ‘god’ of the west.

Sir,

Fortunately all the negatives and atrocities you mentioned under multi-parties in your article are exactly what we are experiencing under the tinkhundla system, but unfortunately, we the current generation, have never experienced multi-parties. Can’t we be given a chance then, than being throttled with this current system. And also, this current system has abused us worse than our colonizers. So the grovelling must stop; if you need a job, work hard for it than parroting at the expense of our livelihoods.

Sir,

How I wish the King saw your article analysis; it would do him a world of good. I fully agree with you in every point you raised. Our King does need good advice from honest emaSwati who still love and respect our monarch. We are praying to God for a heaven-sent way forward for Eswatini.

Sir,

Nxumalo, I just want to applaud your analysis and commentary of the political situation in our country, I wish someone would have whispered that commentary as is to the King before soldiers were unleashed on people. No close relative of mine was a casualty but I felt a very deep pain, I got very angry and I still am. Most people then supported the MPs’ call for a constitutional monarch but after that period of madness, everything changed. I didn’t like parties, I still have my reservations but what other choice is there if the monarchy, as the face of Tinkhundla, feels it’s okay to unleash the army on people who have a different view to force them to shut up. Why was there no advice against this, and if someone did, why was he or she not listened to?
Uyabona what is happening right now, the two MPs behind bars, the alleged extravagant killings of emaSwati by the security forces personnel, the level of arrogance displayed by our leaders, the alleged abuse of women and the elderly in rural areas by the police, the continued suffocation of political demonstrations, the list goes on, do you believe no one has took note of all these things among the people close to the monarchy? Yabona ke, etingcondvweni tetfu tsine labangasiko politically informed sitsi ngule system lena leyenta konkhe loku, why then should we support it? As you can see from my submission that I’m not a politician, I have no political background; I’m just a hurt citizen.

Sir,

Nxumalo, I read your September 7, 2021 article and I found your message very interesting but what I think is making it to be well received by royalty is the uncertainty and the belief that emaSwati would slow down and forget like it had been happening in the past. What they don’t realise is that the sooner they can engage the better because everyone wants proper democracy not minority rule. If you read the Bible you’ll see what I mean when people want change. As for King Samuel, he embraced change because he consulted God about what the people were requesting; even then it was Samuel’s sons who had gone against God and the people.

: Schools protests
Are the school protests a result of a lack of teachers or political unrest?
