Mario Masuku criticizes the Swazi Constitution
30 July 2009
With assistance from Pretoria, on April 12, 1973 Sobhuza II infamously declared: the Constitution of Independence had failed; it was the cause of growing unrest; it had permitted undesirable political practices; and there was no constitutional way to amend the Constitution. A State-of Emergency was declared and Sobhuza II assumed supreme power (Kuper 1978). Parliament was suspended for five years and when it reopened the royalists’ tinkhundla system began to be enforced. The Constitution which was suspended in 1973 was eventually replaced thirty-three years later.
In the brief video clip below, PUDEMO President lists the shortcomings of the so-called “new” Constitution. Masuku has been an outspoken critic of the Swazi regime for years and they think he can be silenced by prison. VIVA Mario VIVA!
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
SWAZILAND: President of the Danish parliament Mogens Lykketoft called on Denmark and the European Union to do everything to secure the release of socialist leader Mario Masuku and student activist Maxwell Dlamini.
