MBABANE:Life is literally a struggle for security guards employed by a company known as Intelligence Security, the company has been failing to pay salaries since December 2023.

As a result, some security guards have been ‘kicked’ or locked out of their rented houses for failing to pay rent.

One of the security guards who contacted this Swaziland News alleged that,sometimes he would go on an empty stomach for five(5) days.

“Since December, we haven’t receive our salaries and the situation is becoming worse such that, sometimes I go on an empty stomach for five(5) days”, said the security guard.

A questionnaire was sent to the Management of the company, however, the Director have not responded at the time of compiling this report.

Reached for comments by this Swaziland News on Sunday evening, Wander Mkhonza, the Secretary General of the Amalgamated Trade Union of Swaziland(ATUSWA) urged the employees to report their employer to the police for ‘robbing’ them.

Employees have an obligation to present themselves at their place of employment and employers in return have an obligation to pay workers for time worked. As workers, we are only paid after we have worked and if an employer fails to pay us it clearly means that we are robbed and robbing people is a criminal offense. Workers must go report the employer to the police in terms of Section 54 of the Employment Act”, said the ATUSWA Secretary General when speaking to editor Zweli Martin Dlamini.
