MBABANE:Lawyer Sicelo Mngomezulu,the Chairperson of the pro-democracy MultiStakeholder Forum(MSF)says,they will collectively work towards ushering eSwatini into a new democratic dispensation in honour of assassinated human rights lawyer Thulani Rudolf Maseko.

Responding to this Swaziland News on Sunday,the MSF Chairperson said,the assassination of the lawyer remains an indelible stain on the conscience of Eswatini's killer regime.

Thulani  Rudolf Maseko,the then MSF Chairperson was assassinated on the 21st January 2023 allegedly,by King Mswati’s mercenaries merely for demanding democracy.

“The assassination of Cde TR Maseko remains an indelible stain on the conscience of Eswatini’s killer Regime.The mass democratic movement (MDM) and the MSF lost in him a steadfast voice and a sound mind.His unrelenting pursuit for a Swaziland free of despotic rule remains our inspiration.We pledge not to betray Cde TR by selling out and cutting personal deals with the Tinkundla Regime which do not advance the MDM’s collective interests and the democratic revolution.This we will do to honour Cde TR, because we understand that he never betrayed the MDM and insisted on unity always.We will deliver a democratic Swaziland in our lifetime so as to ensure that those who,like Cde TR, paid the ultimate price did not do so in vain,” said the MSF Chairperson.

On Saturday, diplomats from the United States(US) Embassy, European Union(EU), United Nations(UN) and the United Kingdom(UK) graced the unveiling of Thulani Rudolf Maseko’s tombstone at kaLuhleko, the lawyer was an internationally recognized human rights defender.
