Natural Resources and Energy Minister Prince Lonkhokhela who was recently implicated in the stealing of a multibillion kaolin mineral as exposed by this publication, must be investigated to ascertain the amount of money he might have looted at the Eswatini National Provident Fund(ENPF) where he was the Chief Executive Officer(CEO).

Prince Lonkhokhela allegedly sidelined King Mswati and went on to influence the issuing of an alleged fraudulent mining license to a company owned by his daughter Princess Simile less than six(6) months after being appointed into Cabinet.

The subsequent suspension of Robert Biyela,the Commissioner of Mines should not only pave a way for an investigation into the issuing of the fraudulent license but,a forensic investigation must be conducted to ascertain the amount he might have stolen at the Eswatini National Provident Fund(ENPF).

Lonkhonkhela was in charge of public funds at the Provident Fund and therefore, his alleged fraudulent conduct should trigger the forensic investigation.

Within six(6) months after being appointed into Cabinet,Prince Lonkhonkhela has stolen a multibillion kaolin mineral, this is an alleged fraudster who cannot be trusted with public office.
