MHLUMENI – Partially blind and living through agonising pain is what Because Matsenjwa will now be forced to endure as his source of livelihood was taken from him.


The old man’s source of livelihood was rearing cattle. He had a kraal with a herd of 24.
However, this will now be a distant memory as his herd has been reduced to almost nothing allegedly by the King’s emissary.


The emissary’s name is known to this publication but has been deliberately withheld as he could not be reached for comment. 
According to Matsenjwa’s assertion, his cattle were the only assets he had before they were forcefully taken. In total, 36 cattle were taken from two families.


The cattle were forfeited from the families following allegations that their children had stolen four beasts from His Majesty King Mswati III’s cattle. Matsenjwa’ son, Mpendulo (26) was alleged to be part of a syndicate and had colluded with a veterinary officer who was also fined 18 cattle.


His cattle were taken before Christmas, which means the family had nothing to be merry about this past festive season but misery was their companion.


Blood


With bloodshot eyes, Matsenjwa narrated that he watched in disbelief as Dlamini arrived with police who were armed to the teeth to take all his livestock.
With tears welling up in his eyes, the disgruntled former civil servant wondered why he had to be persecuted for his son’s demeanour.
“If he had raped someone, would they have taken me into custody for his sins?”
