“As we get ready for the Black Monday, 6 September,a date that was meant to be joy to the life of swazi people but ended up being the worse nightmare for this great nation,sending thousands to poverty,empowering a certain family and the elite few with the ticket to abuse power,loot public funds,torture innocent citizens,crush on human rights and human rights defenders and being the law unto themselves. The date was meant to bring light and smile to the masses, unfortunately this is the date where the souls of our people were sold to darkness and anguish”, he said.
