MP Magawugawu wants political prisoners released before dialogue.

Monday, 25th October, 2021

MBABANE: Mduduzi ‘Magawugawu’ Simelane, the Siphofaneni Member of Parliament has come out to clarify  that political dialogue cannot commence with political prisoners like MPs Bacede Mabuza and Mthandeni Dube behind bars.

Speaking on this Swaziland News on Sunday during his Family Meeting programme, Simelane quoted the words of Nelson Mandela who stated that prisoners cannot negotiate with those who kept the keys of their prison cells.

“Political prisoners like Nelson Mandela were released first before negotiations”, said the pro-democracy MP.

Eswatini is in the midst of a political crisis after Mswati unleashed soldiers and the police to shoot and kill dozens of civilians merely for demanding democratic reforms.
