Pro-democracy artist Mzwakhe Myeni blasts MPs for plotting to buy guns, says they must address public demands

Wednesday, 4th August, 2021

MBABANE: Gospel artist Mzwakhe Myeni, a brother to Nkilongo pro-democracy Member of Parliament (MP), Timothy Myeni has condemned the MPs who opted to buy guns to fight the citizens instead of addressing their concerns.

Speaking to this Swaziland News, Myeni said MPs should represent the people in Parliament and start addressing the issues raised in the petitions instead of  purchasing guns to kill the very same people who elected them into Parliament.

“Members of Parliament shouldn’t be  doing evil and criminal offenses such as planning and arranging the purchasing of guns in order to shoot the people who voted for them, unless they  are suggesting that the people should also purchase their own. If ever the law was operational in the country they would have been arrested by now. Shame on the people who issued the order to arrest Mduduzi Bacede Mabuza and Mthandeni Dube because these MPS  are doing what the people want. We are tired of begging and following a certain protocol in order to obtain service delivery”, said the Gospel artist. 

On or around 30th July 2021 ,this publication covered an investigative story  suggesting that a meeting known as a “Parliamentary caucus” was held around 4pm on Thursday, 29 July 2021  and chaired by Maphalaleni MP Mabulala Maseko where the issue of supplying the MPs with guns was discussed at length.This came after citizens across the country delivered petitions to their MPs demanding for democratic reforms.
