The SSN welcomes COSATU’S solidarity as King Mswati finally reveals his mental issues

The Swaziland Solidarity Network (SSN) wishes to welcome the practical solidarity shown by one of its closest solidarity partner, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU).

COSATU has planned three border protests, all of which will be held on the 9th of September of this year. The protests will take place in Oshoek, Matsamo, and Lavumisa borders. They are part of the annual Global Week of Action for the democratization of the kingdom of Swaziland.

While this is happening, Swazis are finally coming to terms with the fact that their head of state is psychologically unstable to the point where he requires immediate professional intervention. In a widely televised speech, Mswati made a spectacle of himself by ranting about jealous people who suspect him of squandering public funds when he is simply a successful businessman.

In his public cry for help, the king sought solace in the Christian faith by loudly praising God, “Halleluiah”. Having a mentally unstable head of state is dangerous for the Swazi citizens as the man is prone to making irrational decisions. This has prompted even those in his inner circle to consider fleeing the country. We urge these people to help their king in his time of need by checking him into a mental institution while engaging the people towards the inevitable, a democratic Swaziland.
