SADC meeting warns of escalating tensions in Eswatini

The Southern African Development Community (Sadc) bloc has called for dialogue to end the ongoing and sporadic acts of violence in Eswatini.

Speaking at the Sadc extraordinary organ troika summit taking place in Windhoek, Namibia on Tuesday, Geingob said the summit was expected to receive and consider, among others, a report on politics and security in the Kingdom of Eswatini.

He was addressing a delegation which included President Cyril Ramaphosa, accompanied by ministers Mondli Gungubele, Naledi Pandor and Thandi Modise.

Geingob’s call comes after the assassination of Eswatini human rights lawyer Thulani Maseko, who was gunned down recently. The Eswatini government said Maseko was killed by unknown criminals at his home in Mbabane.
