Mswati’s regime was not intimidated when a handful of citizens sang and danced next to the High Court in support of the incarcerated pro-democracy Members of Parliament(MPs) Bacede Mabuza and Mthandeni Dube.
But as the crowd grew, the police from the Operational Support Services Unit(OSSU) started camping next to Mangwaneni with weapons, waiting for an order to shoot and disperse the protesters so that it could appear as if the MPs were on their own with no support.
The unity among members of the various political parties, who danced, sang and ate together next to the High Court was a major threat to a regime that has been spreading propaganda saying political parties would divide the country.
Now, that the regime is threatened by the unity of the progressive forces, they must continue to unite against this cruel and oppressive regime.
Politics is a dirty game and whenever the police react, it is important to understand why they reacted in this manner, and establish their intention.
It’s a pity that police are being used a political tool that oppress them as well, after shooting the civilians who are fighting for a better life for all, they will kneel to shylocks for their bank cards to withdraw the peanuts paid by Government.
So the police must know that wherever they shoot civilians, they are, in one way or the other, shooting themselves.
