In 2013 we witnessed the death of Democracy which was caused by Mswati and his cronies when they drove the final nails to the coffin by the sham elections, which is our eyes as the Swazi vigil are SELECTIONS were the KING HAND PICKS his purpets to sit in the parliament.   In country it is an exiting moment where people will go to the polls knowing that their votes are worth something not in Swaziland where we had been that only protect the king and the yes and his inner circle.
For over four decades these had not help anyone but has it has continued to make ordinary Swazi people's lives a misery. Nothing will change is Swazi politics until the TINKHUDLA system changes and they allow political parties.The change reflects a choice of faces rather than a choice of ideas.The MPs will not be able to bring any change unless the system changes.Under the TINKHUDLA electoral system political parties are not allowed to take part in elections,this prohibition has been a source of a long standing tension between the state and opposition movement who say the 1973 is undemocratic and repressive.
The country's opposition group such as SWAYOCO and PUDEMO boycott election calling them undemocratic selection designed to shore up the king's power rather than reflect the electorate wishes.Under the system the king chooses the prime minister and appoints ten MPs to the Parliament while voters elect 55 MPs although potential candidates need to be approved by the king.The king is an embarrassment and selfish man who does not represent a vast majority of the Swazi people only cares about protecting his interest.All these things he is doing one day people's prayers will be answered and his government will have to answered some serious question and the lives of the Swazi people will change for the best.
