MBABANE:Nkosingphile Seyama, the Secretary General of the Swazis First Democratic Front(SFDF) has, on behalf of the political organization, released a statement blasting King Mswati’s regime amid the escalating health crisis in the country.
This comes after patients protested on Wednesday morning, demanding drugs at Mbabane Government Hospital.
“The SFDF is shocked by the current prevailing health care situation in Swaziland. Swazis remain a Nation without a democratic system and the inhuman activities displayed by a nation heading towards the deep and dark corridors of disaster remains not only pathetic but uncalled for and leaderless.
While Swazis remain treated as slaves and subjects to a so-called King and his regime, royalty still holds the epitome card of care and luxury. As a common phenomenon Swazis die and continuously suffer the medical atrocities of an alarming medical shortage, the King's wives enjoys the pleasure of being flown out to Netcare's South African medial health facilities,” reads the statement in part.
A questionnaire was sent to Percy Simelane, the King’s Spokesperson, however, he had not responded at the time of compiling this report.
On another note, Lizzie Nkosi, the Minister of Health rushed to Mbabane Government Hospital on Wednesday afternoon, shortly after the patients staged a protest.
The Minister said Government was determined to address the health crisis and provide drugs in hospitals.
