Food for thought - R33 million for Mswati's 45th birthday

By Reader's comment | 2013-04-19 14:44:05.0 | COMMENTS [ 104 ]

Exactly one year after creeping to South Africa, cap in hand, to seek a R2.4 Billion loan from that country, King Mswati is throwing himself a birthday party whose overall expenditure exceeds R33 million.

This figure has been kept from the public, who have been fed the lie that only R10 million has been set aside for royal celebrations this year. Not that R10 million is an insignificant figure for a poor nation which only a year ago could barely pay its civil servants, but the figure that inside sources have revealed to us is  a shocking R33 million.

The Swaziland Solidarity Network strongly condemns this grotesque waste of public funds and hopes that the country's sponsors will take note of exactly what they fund when they give away millions of rands to this narcissistic despot known as Mswati. Swazis should also stop fearing the batons and guns of security forces and stop this mad waste.

Even if it was R100, it would still be too much for a party to celebrate the life of a known dictator and murderer!

Are you aware that smoking one's own socks is not good? how can you ask if we are aware (as if you are) and then say might have been? Hai malume swilo hini naa?

xikosi - His last palace cost R200, he builds one for every wife. Think he is on wife #12 now. She is the underage one.

And no, this R33 million figure is probably under reported.

Swati people do not have any problem with this, try speak to a swati person about their king, man they would literally kill you. Sol let them suffer, because they don't want to stand up against this dick_tator.

GrammatonCleric - No, they never pay back the money.

Zim owes us a good couple of tens of billions of rands. Now Jacob wants to give him R900 million more and a truckload of our helicopters.
