MBABANE: Sibongile Mazibuko, the President of the Ngwane National Liberatory Congress(NNLC) has been summoned by the police again as State security agents intensify moves to stop a protest march against King Mswati that is highly expected to take place on Thursday.

Speaking to this Swaziland News on Wednesday afternoon, the NNLC President confirmed that she was summoned to meet senior police officers at the Mbabane Police Station at 4:30pm.

“I have been summoned to the police station at 4:30pm” she said.

The NNLC President, together with other Swazis including truck drivers who are being targeted and burnt in South Africa as citizens of that country claims they are taking their jobs, created a whatsap group and resolved to organise a protest march against King Mswati whom they accused of destroying the country thus forcing them to migrate to other countries for jobs.

Mazibuko has been summoned by the police for the second time in a space of two weeks, she was previously questioned and warned against speaking about issues that might influence the public to rebel against King Mswati. This was after she revealed that the King and companies linked to royalty were looting pensioners monies with impunity within the Public Service Pension Fund.

Superintendent Phindile Vilakati when asked by this publication earlier, why the police were looking for the NNLC President said, the police will let Mazibuko know about the purpose of the meeting once she arrives at the police station. “I think the police will inform her about the purpose of the meeting once she arrives” said the Police Spokesperson.

Eswatini, a tiny Kingdom in Southern Africa ruled by King Mswati, an absolute Monarch has about 70% of the population living below the poverty line, political parties are banned from taking part in elections and criticism directed to the King and his government might attract sedition or treason charges.
