Ongoing political and security situation in the Kingdom of eSwatini

The South African Government notes with great concern the ongoing political and security situation in the Kingdom of eSwatini.

We are particularly concerned by reports of loss of life and destruction of properties.

The right to peaceful protest is universally recognised.

The South African Government calls on the security forces to exercise total restraint and protect the lives and property of the people, in keeping with the country’s constitutional provisions and laws.

In addition, South Africa urges all political actors and civil society to engage in meaningful dialogue in order to resolve the current political challenges facing the country.

Enquiries: Mr. Clayson Monyela, Spokesperson for DIRCO, 082 884 5974
