Absa had every right to wait 15 months before it closed down the accounts of Gupta-owned companies‚ .
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

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.
