OPINION:King Mswati must account for the Lufafa Gold Mine millions,minerals must be used by Government to implement poverty reduction programs.

Saturday, 18th November, 2023

King Mswati spoke about fighting poverty during Sibaya,he even went as far as emphasizing that unemployment and/or poverty have escalated to become a national disaster.

But the King failed to declare that, he is actually the perpetrator of poverty in this country by incubating corruption,looting of public funds and minerals.

We once published a proof of payment where the then Salgaocar Mine Director Shan Ramunga was paying over R100million to the King as an advance payment, these are monies that could have been utilized by the eSwatini Government to implement poverty reduction programmes.

It is very unfortunate to note that, this country is sustained with donations from the international community when there are minerals that benefit only one man and his royal family. 

On Saturday last week, Prophet Uebert Angel, the Zimbabwean alleged gold ‘thief’ who was exposed by Aljazeera in a documentary "the gold mafia" was in the country, preaching at Mandvulo Hall-Lozitha Palace.

Despite the serious allegations leveled against this alleged Zimbabwean ‘thief’, King Mswati invited him to preach during the End of Year Service.

How can a Prophet who is allegedly implicated in gold smuggling preach the gospel and be a symbol of Christianity?.

Even in Zimbabwe, this prophet is alleged to be linked to President Emerson Mnangagwa's corrupt syndicate that is the source of poverty and suffering of innocent Zimbabweans.

It is clear that King Mswati is an alleged gold smuggler, he was just fooling the unsuspecting emaSwati during Sibaya, poverty cannot he eradicated with mineral resources benefiting only the King and his corrupt syndicate.

The law states that, the King hold shares in the various Mines in trust for the eSwatini Nation and if that’s the case, Mswati must declare and release those monies to benefit the over seven hundred thousand(700 000) emaSwati living below the poverty line and that is about 70% of the population.
