The United States(US) Congress resolution 174 tabled by Foreign Relations Chairperson Senator Christopher Coons that seeks to, among others, influence sanctions against those violating human rights in eSwatini is one of the most critical decisions that brings hope to the oppressed Swazis.
Government Spokesperson Alpheous Nxumalo,a political novice, must know that the resolution if adopted,those violating human rights in the country will face targeted sanctions.
Blasting the US Senators who are pushing the resolution will not solve the political crisis in the country, King Mswati knows what to do to resolve the political crisis but, the dictator killed civilians and thought he will get away with it.
The killing of civilians during the political unrest is yet to ‘hunt’ this regime for the next coming years.
As the situation stands, the US Congress resolution might be complemented by another decision by the International Criminal Court(ICC) to investigate King Mswati on alleged crimes against humanity.
The eSwatini political issue is now handled within the highest international structures and this should be a lesson to King Mswati and his corrupt and oppressive regime that eSwatini cannot be an island of dictatorship in a sea of democracy.
The sentiments of Government Spokesperson when quoted by the Swazi Observer on Wednesday suggests that this political novice thinks the resolution was tabled in the Parliament controlled by Mswati.
The mere fact that the eSwatini political situation will be debated in an American Parliament is a huge step to the right direction,King Mswati will eventually fall.
Mswati deprived the people their right to elect a government and went as far as killing them merely for, demanding democratic reforms.
The King refused to release incarcerated Members of Parliament(MPs) Bacede Mabuza and Mthandeni Dube.
Mswati is doing this to demonstrate power and arrogance.
Unfortunately, the King will fall while trying to prove to us that he is the King by demonstrating arrogance, this country will eventually be ushered into democracy.
Senator Christopher Coons.
