MBABANE: The Commander of the Swaziland International Solidarity Forces(SISF) says they will now be strategic when bombing structures and hit structures very close to Mswati’s heart.
This comes after King Mswati declared war, saying the burning of any structure from now onwards would be interpreted as a direct attack on him adding that everything within eSwatini belonged to him.
Meanwhile, Cyril Ramaphosa, the President of the African National Congress(ANC) when delivering the January 08 statement during the 110 ANC Anniversary at Polokwane, said the ruling party supported efforts to end conflict within eSwatini and other troubled countries in Africa.
“We support the ongoing efforts to find African solutions to African problems in resolving the conflicts in Mozambique, Lesotho, the Kingdom of Eswatini, Sudan and Ethiopia.We will continue to support the SADC mission in Mozambique”, said the ANC President.
Speaking to this Swaziland News after the King’s speech on Saturday, the Commander of the ground forces said as the King has spoken in this manner declaring war, it was important for them to hit anything very close to him.
“It’s important for us to prove him that we mean business by hitting anything close to his heart because if we can be quiet these days after his threatening speech, that would mean we now are afraid.Mswati has done everything, he has tortured, arrested and even killed citizens so even if he can kill, there’s nothing new, he has killed many people. Once we hit, he will deploy soldiers to guard his properties and that’s what we want. We want the country to be engulfed by fear with soldiers deployed on the streets so that investors cannot come here, eventually, his regime will collapse”, said the Solidarity Forces Commander whose name is known to this publication but cannot be revealed for ethical reasons.
The Solidarity Forces clarified in an earlier interview that they were not linked to any political organization but decided to bomb structures and target high profile people to put pressure on Mswati.
The Conveyor of the Solidarity Forces, when interviewed by this journalist last week claimed responsibility over the CTA petrol bombing, burning of Minister David Cruiser Ngcamphalala’s home, the Buy Cash heist and Speaker Petros Mavimbela’s home bombing among others.
King Mswati, when dispersing his regiments declared war, saying any attack now would be interpreted as a direct attack to him.
King Mswati is subject of an investigation by international human rights organizations after he unleashed soldiers and the police to shoot and kill dozens of civilians merely for demanding democratic reforms.
The Human Rights Commission released a preliminary report suggesting that forty-six(46) people have been killed since the political unrest started. But the civil society and political parties alleged that over one hundred(100) people were killed with over seventy(70) already identified.
CTA was recently bombed.
