OPINION:King Mswati’s corrupt and untouchable emaZinyane inclusion in governing structures will turn this country upside down.

Tuesday, 21st November, 2023

The inclusion of King Mswati’s corrupt and untouchable emaZinyane in governing structures of this country,will in the long run, turn this country upside down.

Prince Sicalo, the Principal Secretary(PS) in the Ministry of Defense and Security is alleged to be abusing his powers to loot public funds and this,has resulted to the army facing shortage of food thus threatening State security.

Soldiers are not bodyguards or security guards for the King and his children,they are servants of the country with a significant role in maintaining security and the safety of citizens.

It’s very unfortunate that, soldiers are sometimes used to shoot and kill civilians merely for demanding democracy, we hope one day they will  realize that, they must be loyal to the country and citizens instead of reducing themselves to become mere security guards for Mswati and his family.

Prince Sicalo is messing the administration of the army, he is allegedly running the Ministry of Defense and Security like a family business and some soldiers are aggrieved about his leadership amid shortage of food.

But apart from Sicalo’s maladministration in the army, soldiers have been complaining about their unpaid salary increment monies, the State is taking advantage that, soldiers are not affiliated to any trade union and as a result, their voices are suppressed.

In conclusion, it is important to state, emaZinyane are exercising the absolute power vested upon their father King Mswati, they are messing-up this country with impunity and/or without fear of being held accountable.
