THANKS BUT NO THANKS: The People's Parliament continued to attract the nation from all over the country on the second day.
A member of the people’s parliament commissioned by His Majesty King Mswati III on Wednesday said he had anticipated or hoped that parliament and cabinet would be dissolved.
Simanga Nkhosi, from Matsanjeni North Constituency, in his submission said cabinet was responsible for the problems the country was facing, thus it was time they were let go.
He said this in the presence of most cabinet ministers, who were present, including their leader Sibusiso Dlamini.
Nkhosi’s submission enjoyed a loud round of applause and cheers from the rest of the people’s parliament members.
The king advised Swazis to speak freely and openly on any issues they felt needed to be addressed. He stressed though that respect was key.
Nkhosi stated cabinet members were selfish and had only their own interests at heart when executing their duties entrusted upon them by the nation.
He also took a swipe at Prime Minister Sibusiso Dlamini, labelling him the biggest villain in the cabinet team.
“I wish that the prime minister should be fired, as soon as possible, because he is the biggest villain in that cabinet team. I had come here hoping he would be fired,” Nkhosi said.
After Nkhosi made his submission, the people who had packed the cattle byre roared in jubilation, showing that they were happy with Nkhosi’s submission.
Nkhosi went on to urge the authorities to make sure that there was a fully fledged police station in Mambane.
This is because, according to him, there were so many ritual killings in that area, which resulted in some people going missing because of the ritual killings.
“We need a police station like the one in Mafutseni so that the ritual killings can be stopped,” he said.
He also asked for the road from Good Shepherd Hospital to Mambane to be tarred to make transportation of goods and people to be easy in that area.
