HHELEHHELE: Sithembiso Mngometulu, the resident of Hhelehhele in the Manzini region who was allegedly shot by Industrial Court Judge Abande Dlamini says there is no justice system in eSwatini.
Speaking to this Swaziland News on Tuesday, Mngometulu said he reported the Judge to the police several times but the law enforcement agency failed to arrest him because he was powerful.
“The way things are happening, I might find myself taking the law into my own hands. However, once I do that, the police would be quick to arrest me yet now they are failing to arrest Abande”, he said.
Questions were sent to Judge Abande Dlamini, however, he had not responded at the time of compiling this report.
Reached for comments, human rights lawyer Sibusiso Nhlabatsi said the constitution promoted equality before the law and wondered why the Judge who was accused of committing a crime was not arrested and clear his name in court.
“We are surprised because even the Judicial Service Commission(JSC) is quiet yet another Judge who was accused of wrongdoing was suspended”, said the human rights lawyer.
