The political activist said they will continue engaging the UK government  with the aim of presenting evidence to substantiate that the eSwatini government was violating human rights.

"There is evidence that we present to the current British Prime Minister of people being beaten by King Mswati\'s police. We don't want to see Mswati when he comes here and be given a status of a king because he don't deserve that as he violates human rights. People in Eswatini are silenced through fear because the government is led by the Tinkhundla system that serve the interests of royalty not of the larger populace," he said.
