In our March 16, 2012 publication we published a tribute to the late Inkhosikati LaMasuku. It has been brought to our attention that in the write-up we breached protocol and as a result ended up publishing material that brought the institution of the Monarchy into disrepute. We would like to unreservedly apologise to the Monarchy and the Royal Family for any embarrassment that the article may have caused.
In our March 19, 2012 publication in the Foreign News section we carried a story that appeared to undermine the person and integrity of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea President. We would also like to extend our apologies to the president and all those who may have been offended by the publication of the article.
The Swazi Observer Group of newspapers remain committed to its mission statement which is to protect the institution of the Monarchy in particular His Majesty King Mswati III and the Queen Mother and to promote the image and the interests of the Kingdom of Swaziland without prejudice to the people of Swaziland.
