Eswatini Peaceable After Kingdom Skilled Violent Protests

The Kingdom of Eswatini is usually known to be peaceful and stable and only recently became host to the African Tourism Board. This inland African country turned into chaos after the outbreak of protests. Security appears to have been restored.

  1. Mbabane, the capital of the Eswatini Kingdom, is quiet with hardly any traffic and people on the streets. The security forces seemed to be back in control after a chaotic situation.
  2. Especially young protesters demanded Eswatini implements political reforms and allows political parties. They are calling on His Majesty King Mswati to relinquish his absolute powers and appoint a Prime Minister to rule the country.
  3. Eswatini is known as a peaceful country and people with big hearts. The African Tourism Board made Eswatini their home earlier this month to help with a huge upcoming cultural event.

The country has faced protests in at least 10 different locations for several days, forcing police to disperse protesters with tear gas and live ammunition, resulting in injuries.

It has been reported that His Majesty King Mswati III has left the country. The incumbent Prime Minister Themba Masuku denied this in a government statement and promised to update the situation today.

Cuthbert Ncube, the chairman of the African Tourism Board, is currently in Eswatini and previously spoke to eTurboNews: “The situation in the capital is under control. The army was called. “

Ncube said: “We are continuing our commitments with the committee team appointed by the Minister to lead and oversee program preparations for the 2022 Continental Cultural Festival, which we expect to see more than 25 discerning member states in the Kingdom of Eswatini reflect the rich diversity of Africa Proud of art and culture.

I had a conversation with the Minister of Tourism Hon Vilakati, who is in high spirits and has pledged his undivided support for this great initiative to bring Africa together, which was initiated by the minister himself in cooperation with UNESCO and a partnership with the African Tourism Board. “

“Post Covid ATB is striving to rename the continent and position it as the most desirable investment and tourist destination of choice.”

This has been repeated by the Hon. Tourism Minister Moses Vilakati. He told eTurboNews: “There is some unrest caused by the youth. The forces control it now. “

The protests, in which trucks were set on fire and looted, flared up a few days ago after the monarchy and government issued a decree banning petitions calling for democratic reforms, Swaziland News reported.

The Eswatini leader rules the country as an absolute monarch and he is the one who selects the prime minister, ministers, judges and officials.

Eswatini, formerly known as Swaziland, is usually known as a peaceful country.
The African Tourism Board has just made Eswatini its new home and the country is planning a huge cultural festival to revitalize its travel and tourism industries.

It is to be hoped that the current calm will persist. Sources told eTurboNews, “There are outside forces bringing in ammunition. ”

It is understood that the Eswatini Kingdom recognizes Taiwan and is the only country in the region.
