MBABANE: Nude pictures of Army Commander Jeffery Shabalala and other sexual electronic evidence have been uncovered in the midst of a high level investigation.

Swaziland News editor Zweli Martin Dlamini who is in possession of the information said it was obtained in the midst of an ongoing investigation into various plots by the Heads of security forces to arrest and or assassinate human rights defenders in the midst of the political crisis.

“It’s true we are in possession of critical information about the Army Commander including private information. On the issue of these pictures we are analysing whether these sexual activities were linked to his public duties so we can decide if it’s in the public interest or not. Otherwise,our investigation was merely targeting the Heads of the three security forces, we knew if we investigate them electronically, we will know what King Mswati was planning against the people because they interact with him directly. Fortunately, we managed to get critical information that could be used to substantiate even the crimes against humanity case” said the editor.

Dlamini said even though the information was obtained outside of the terms of reference of the investigation, it helped to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the Army Commander.
