SITEKI: Detective Sbongiseni Mkhabela, the officer who allegedly shot the Lubombo Central High School reminded Swaziland News editor Zweli Martin Dlamini that he was delivering bread at his shop some years ago.

“Do you remember me, I was delivering bread to your shop”,said the police officer.
The editor used to own a tuck shop with an SPTC spaza phone business at Matsapha between 2005-2008, at the time, the detective was working for a company subcontracted to Prime Bakery.

On another note, Swaziland News editor said he knew Mkhabela before he became a police officer but part of his responses when asked about to the shooting were not relevant to the subject matter.
