SITHOBELWENI: Bheki Mlandvo Dlamini, the police officer who terrorized children with guns in the various schools was on Sunday morning involved in a car accident, he is in a critical condition at Sithobelweni health Centre.

Reached for comments, Welcome Mdluli, the President of the Swaziland Democratic Nurses Union(SWADNU) confirmed that the officer\'s life was now in the hands of nurses after being involved in a car accident.
“Yes, it is true that he was involved in an accident. Information we are getting is that he was treated at RFM hospital as an outpatient, he was then transferred to Sithobelweni where he is currently admitted. We want to warn the police that the brutality against nurses and the general members of the public must stop. We need each other, we speak one language and we all need democracy including the police. If this brutality continues, the truth is, it may not end well for both of us”, said the Nurses Union President.
Police Spokesperson, Phindile Vilakati had not responded at the time of compiling this report.
It has been disclosed that the officer was sneaked out of Raleigh Fitkin Memorial(RFM) Hospital after some nurses were heard discussing that he was one of the most problematic officers during the protests.
“He was admitted at RFM in the morning today(Sunday) but was later taken to his house after some nurses were heard making some comments that he was one of the problematic police officers in the country. While at home, his situation worsened because he was bleeding through the mouth and was then rushed to Sithobelweni health Centre with the hope that the nurses in that facility don’t know him”, said an insider very close to the matter.
Eswatini is in the midst of a political crisis, citizens are allegedly killed by Mswati’s police and soldiers merely for demanding democratic reforms.
It has been disclosed that over one hundred(100) citizens have been shot and killed, over two hundred injured by the police and other security officers since the unrest started in June 2021. But the Human Rights Commission has confirmed forty-six(46) deaths so far in their preliminary report, while political parties say their preliminary assessment obtained evidence of more seventy(70) civilians who were killed.
Nurses and other health workers subsequently engaged in a protest within the various health institutions demanding an end to police brutality, they threatened not to attend to sickly police officers within the various hospitals. This comes after members of the public including health workers were shot by the police during a protest in Mbabane on Wednesday last week.
