MANZINI: Colani Maseko, the President of the Swaziland National Union of Students (SNUS)who is critical of King Mswati has been summoned by the National Commissioner of Police (NATCOM) William Tsintsibala Dlamini.

This comes after the youth leader warned the King to release incarcerated pro-democracy MPs before the dialogue or the youth will be forced to render the country ungovernable.

Speaking to this Swaziland News, Maseko said he received a call from Elvis Shabangu, the  Manzini Regional Commissioner of Police on Monday afternoon that he has been summoned by the NATCOM to urgently report to the Police Headquarters in Mbabane before the end of the week.

 "They said the NATCOM wants us to discuss certain important issues.They even offered transport to take me to him, I  was surprised that they want to address me secretly as a students leader, if they want to discuss anything with me they should do so in public infront of the students that I am representing", said the SNUS President.

Superintendent Phindile Vilakati, the Police Spokesperson had not responded to our questionnaire at the time of compiling this report.

On Monday morning, the SNUS President successfully led students to deliver a petition at the Southern Africa Nazarene University (SANU) demanding the return of face to face lessons.
