SHAM PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS
In the next coming weeks the people of Swaziland will be going to the polls to elect next member of parliament what a sad story for our country when other nation vote to elect prime ministers or presidents cos our prime minister is appointed by the king just as well as high position are controlled by the king himself,what hope is there for the people.For decades the people had been voting for the same system that clearly had not worked for the vast majority of the people,elite few had benefited and all those are the ones who say YES to the monarch.
The problem my country is facing were accumulated over a long period of time and we must not expect them to be solved over night or in the next election,the sad thing is that though the current system had failed so many no one at the top seem to realise that perhaps they are blinded by the benefits they enjoy.
Swaziland is now among the sickest,poorest most corrupt and unhappiest nation in the world.Ordinary Swazi people are begging for an alternatives to their present lives which are dominated by poverty,hunger,sickness and death.
All these problem will never be address let alone met with the current system of tinkhudla. We are a small country which should be a good thing but the monarch had used that to their advantage ban political parties stop any kind of reforms,always reminding the people about the 2005 constitution which does not protect anyone but themselves and be able to go after those who dare call for change.The least the king should do hold a referendum about the current system put a yes or no question to the people and see what going to be the results and must be respected and the country can move on.
