LOBAMBA: Senator Isaac Magagula moved a Parliament motion on Thursday calling upon Prime Minister Cleopas Dlamini to strengthen State security in the midst of the current political unrest.
Magagula is a resident of Ezulwini under Indvuna Mashampu Khumalo, his home is situated about 800metres away from the Satelite Station.
It transpired that the Prime Minister was not present in Senate and other Senators suggested that Deputy Prime Minister Themba Masuku must respond to Magagula’s concerns who wanted to know what Government was doing in as far as strengthening the country's security was concerned in the midst of the looming political chaos.
Senator Mkhululi Dlamini suggested that Deputy Prime Minister must respond on behalf of the PM saying issues of State security were very important. This was after Senators Busie Dlamini and Chief Ngalonkhulu said they wanted the PM to be present in Senate to respond to the questions.
“The issue of security is of very importance because there are people who are perpetuating violence in the country. I am confident that the DPM will respond well to the questions because he was holding the position before”,said Senator Mkhululi Dlamini when speaking in Parliament on Thursday.
Eswatini is in the midst of a political crisis, State security officers were unleashed by King Mswati to shoot and kill dozens of civilians who were demanding democratic reforms. However, the death of the citizens was never vigorously discussed in Parliament, instead MPs secretly held a meeting to discuss possibilities of purchasing guns while Senators wanted Government to strengthen State security in the midst of the looming political chaos.
