Africa-Press – Eswatini. The army was deployed at Sigodvweni Police Station on Thursday night after members of the Swaziland International Solidarity Forces(SISF)fired a hail of bullets.
It has been disclosed that on the same night, the Solidarity Forces were conducting an operation at Kwaluseni(Matsapha)including an attack at pro-Tinkhundla Member of Parliament(MP) Sibusiso Mabhanisi Dlamini who falsely testified against incarcerated MPs Bacede Mabuza and Mthandeni Dude.
“It’s true that we invaded Sigodvweni Police Station and MP Mabhanisi’s home and fired a hail of bullets,” said a member of the Solidarity Forces whose name cannot be revealed for ethical reasons.
When this publication called MP Mabhanisi Dlamini for a comment, he insulted this journalist.
“Yeyi fus…..ki(sensitive language withheld for ethical reasons) wena mani, ungaphindzi ungishayele(meaning: Don’t call me again,” said the frustrated MP who is wanted dead by members of the Solidarity Forces.
But former Kwaluseni Constituency Headman(Indvuna YeNkhundla) Mthunzi Dlamini confirmed the shooting adding that the invaders were carrying heavy guns.
“I am the MP’s neighbour and I heard guns shots, the people were using heavy guns. Lapha bekukhala sibhamu lesikhulu, kukhala lesincane, kukhale lesincane, kukhale lesikhulu, kanjalo-kanjalo,” said the former Kwaluseni Inkhundla Constituency Headman.
A questionnaire was sent to Superintendent Phindile Vilakati, the Police Spokesperson, however, she had not responded at the time of compiling this report.
Eswatini is in the midst of a political unrest after King Mswati unleashed his soldiers and the police to shot and kill dozens of civilians merely for demanding democratic reforms.
