A majority of emaSwati have been subliminally programmed not to think but to obey and follow orders coming from authority akin to the walking dead. That is borne of the reality that when one group of people has superiority of force over another, when the stronger appropriate to themselves the prerogative even to annul the injunction that God created all men and women in His image. Even with a new Cabinet it still subscribes to the same old concepts, values and systems of its predecessors thus feeding to the narrative that elections under the prevailing political hegemony do not change anything except faces of Cabinet.


Typically, Cabinet, old and new, seems to have one tool to resolve impasses, violence by its militarised police service. American professor of psychology Abraham Maslow could not have put it any better when he said; “If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.” And you wonder why the security forces always receive a huge slice of the budget when there is so-called peace in our time in this kingdom? Because the security forces are there to unleash violence against and to enforce the peace by terrifying emaSwati into silence, while depriving them of their inalienable human rights even if these are enshrined in and guaranteed by the Constitution.


Consequently the many challenges facing the country can be sourced to the obtaining political system. Most, if not all the problems government is facing have to do with the residency of political power that has weakened or compromised prudent management of the fiscus. The challenges facing the country have to do with the lack of confidence on the obtaining political system exacerbated by wrong policy decisions including extralegal demands by the political elites for shareholding in established and new ventures without any capital outlay. The day our leaders start to honour their titles instead of expecting titles to honour them is the day this country will be reborn. It is wrong and suicidal political decisions that are responsible for the kingdom’s woes and government’s cash-flow challenges and these should not be blamed on emaSwati. And this situation can be remedied if government has the political will to come up with decisions that reflect national imperatives instead of its preoccupation with preparing for a war that will never happen.
