MANZINI – Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Sibusiso Shongwe has expressed his shock at the utterances of the Prime Minister (PM), Sibusiso Barnabas Dlamini, confirming the presence of judiciary challenges in the country’s.

“In fact, I do not believe the premier said the words attributed to him, he must have been quoted out of context but then it remains to be seen,” Shongwe said.

The minister emphasised that the credibility of the Judiciary had not been compromised as it remained strong and independent.
“His Majesty’s courts have made great strides in restoring the rule of law in the country. The episodes of 2002-2003 will never be seen in Swaziland again,” he said.

Shongwe said he was certain that the PM, as the leader of government, knew where he was expected to make such utterances than to do so in a public domain such as Parliament.

According to our sister publication, the Swazi News, the PM was reported to have said he would not resign from his position because he was sure that Cabinet would get to the bottom of the challenges in the Judiciary.

This, after Lobamba Member of Parliament Michael Masilela said the PM should resign if he could not salvage the Judiciary from its alleged mess.
This was Masilela’s submission during the portfolio committee debate on the annual performance report of the private and Cabinet Office (PM’s Office).

Masilela had said he believed that this was a result of the alleged rift between the Justice minister and his Principal Secretary (PS) Thembinkhosi Mamba.
