Wednesday, 3rd August, 2022

MANZINI: Members of the pro-democracy Swaziland International Solidarity Forces(SISF) invaded Zakhele Police Camp on Wednesday evening and fired a hail of bullets.

The escalating political tension in eSwatini comes after Mswati refused to engage in a political dialogue and subsequently unleashed his security forces to kill dozens of civilians.

Reached for comments, the Spokesperson of the Solidarity Forces only confirmed that the forces were already inside eSwatini in preparation for operations.

“We will release a full report later, but the forces are already inside the country for operations,”said the Spokesperson of the Solidarity Forces.

Superintendent Phindile Vilakati had not responded at the time of compiling this report.

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