Political unrest second wave looming in eSwatini, investors must wait for a democratic government.

Monday, 24th January, 2022

The political climate in this tiny Kingdom of eSwatini could be best described as an active political volcano that might erupt anytime.

Geographically, an active volcano is a volcano which is either erupting or is likely to erupt in the future.

But in the political context, the situation in eSwatini, obviously, perpetrated by the lack of a political will to resolve the crisis will soon manifest into a second wave of the political unrest and Mswati’s chances of survival are next to zero.

It should be noted that even though in the eyes of a government that misleads itself, the situation might look stabilized, a political volcano might erupt anytime after Mswati insulted Swazis.

The King labeled those calling for democratic reforms dagga smokers, timphaka, cowards adding that he will never dialogue with them.

The situation is a risk for both domestic and Foreign Direct Investments(FDI), businesspeople will build structures that might be burned during the looming second wave of the political unrest.

But all these political challenges facing the country are the results of poor leadership, Mswati might mislead himself thinking it’s over, yet the people are determined to liberate themselves.

On Sunday evening, students at the University of eSwatini Luyengo Campus engaged in a night protest demanding allowances, these social ills that remain unresolved will surely spark the second wave of the political unrest.

Unfortunately, this country is ruled by a ‘low-minded’ King, he thinks after shooting and killing citizens, things will return to normal.

The second wave of the political unrest is looming and indeed, the political temperatures might reach the boiling point.
