Mswati is day-dreaming, “Kubhunga” during Sibaya is not a dialogue, Parliament must first enact the Political Dialogue Act.

Friday, 14th July, 2023

King Mswati spoke about “Kubhunga” and other media houses interpreted that as a political dialogue.

Perhaps, it is worth-mentioning that a political dialogue cannot be held without a legal framework with clear terms of reference.

A dialogue must be guided by provision of what is known as the “Dialogue Act”.

In this regard, it is clear that Mswati was ‘day-dreaming’, if it’s true that by “Kubhunga”, he was referring to a political dialogue.

The King must understand the seriousness of the political crisis in this country, that the unrest has been halted does not mean it won’t erupt again.

King Mswati and his cronies can sit-down and do “Kubhunga” but,that should not be interpreted as a political dialogue.

It is such tendencies of concluding that all emaSwati are ‘fools’ that resulted to others taking-up arms against this regime, the King thinks political activists can fight for all these years just for “Kubhunga” during Sibaya.

What is needed here is an all inclusive dialogue that will usher this country into a new democratic dispensation.

The dialogue must be held in a neutral venue not Sibaya where King Mswati performs rituals.

In conclusion, let me further mention that those who think “Kubhunga” will solve the problems of this country are “day-dreaming” and this include King Mswati.

“Kubhunga” is normally done by men and women inside drinking spots, no sane Head of State can reduce a national dialogue into “Kubhunga”.

The dialogue must be presided over by a reputable Envoy, from international bodies like the Southern African Development Community(SADC), the United Nations(UN) or the African Union(AU).

Mswati is day-dreaming, “Kubhunga” during Sibaya is not a dialogue, Parliament must first enact the Political Dialogue Act.
King Mswati.
