MBABANE: Mduduzi Gina, the Secretary General of the Trade Union Congress of Swaziland(TUCOSWA) said their members would march to Parliament on Friday to deliver a petition in demand of, among others, an investigation into the killing of dozens of civilians by security forces.
Speaking to this Swaziland News on Thursday, Gina said they noted with great concern that government was attempting to evade accountability regarding the death of 70 citizens who were allegedly killed during the recent protests.
“Government is claiming that there were mercenaries who killed the people but surprisingly, those alleged mercenaries were never arrested instead we saw citizens getting arrested and some were killed. We are saying let’s allow an investigation by the United Nations so that those responsible could be held accountable”, said the TUCOSWA Secretary General.
Gina said as TUCOSWA they would also table documents before Parliament calling for the removal of the 1973 Decree that undermines human rights.
