Parents urged to visit arrested protesting school children as Mswati’s ritual ceremony starts.

Saturday, 9th October, 2021

MBABANE: Parents have been urged to consistently visit their children who were arrested by the police for protesting in demand for democratic reforms in the midst of fears that they might be  murdered by Mswati’s security forces for ritual purposes.

Intelligence information in our possession that was previously exposed by this publication suggests that King Mswati allegedly sent soldiers and the police to shoot and kill citizens at Mashibhini, Lobamba for ritual purposes, their blood was then collected and taken to King’s ritual men at Ludzidzini.

The King is expected to commission a group of men known as Bemanti that include soldiers and the police to go to the Indian Ocean to perform rituals as part of his annual Incwala ceremony.

Speaking to this Swaziland News, Sibongile Mazibuko, the President of the Ngwane National Liberatory Congress(NNLC) said she would soon engage her colleagues in the Political Parties Assembly(PPA) Secretariat to open a platform for parents where they could report their missing children in the midst of the ritual ceremony.

“I will discuss with the PPA Secretariat, we need a platform where parents can call and report their missing children so that we can monitor the situation. We also condemn the harassment of women by Bemanti merely for not covering their heads. Women are accountable to their husbands and if those husbands allowed them not to cover their heads,no one should force them to adhere to Customs that violate their rights”, she said.

King Mswati’s Spokesperson Sabelo Dlamini did not respond to our questions at the time of compiling this report.

The King is expected to go into seclusion in the midst of pro-democracy protests, citizens want him removed from the Throne.
