MBABANE: Judge Justice Mavuso has ruled in favour of Mafucula residents who were unlawfully removed by BantfwaBeNkhosi of Shewula as beneficiaries of their sugar-cane project funded by the European Union(EU).

The Mafucula residents established a sugarcane company known as Mnyangombili Farmers Company Limited and with the support of the EU, the company started to generate millions and that was when other founding Directors of the company were removed by BantfwaBeNkhosi who grabbed the project.

“The Respondent’s Board of Directotd conduct of withholding payment of declared dividends to the Applicant is unlawful. The Respondent is directed and compelled to make payment of the declared dividends to the Applicants. The Applicant is awarded costs of suit at the ordinary scale,” reads the court order by Judge Mavuso.

But the Board of Directors of Mnyangombili has filed an appeal and the pressure to fight the matter further, allegedly comes from BantfwaBeNkhosi of Shewula who grabbed the project on the basis that, they were traditional authorities of the land.
