Unrest persists in a region of Swaziland's small kingdom, which is ruled unilaterally by King Mswati. On Wednesday, September 6, outraged students set fire to Kukhanyeni high school, demanding the release of imprisoned members of parliament who were fighting for democracy.

Mswati, the absolute monarch of Eswatini, is the ruler of this tiny kingdom in Southern Africa.

Mbongwa Dlamini, the President of the Swaziland National Association of Teachers (SNAT), acknowledged that the school is on fire when contacted by this Swaziland News for comment.

“It's heartbreaking to hear such news; a number of schools are protesting, and some are being burned down. We hope that the key parties would take prompt measures to solve the situation in the country," he said.

When we contacted Lady Howard-Mabuza, the Minister of Education, she did not respond to our queries.

As the fight for democracy heats up, students from numerous schools across the country are boycotting classes.
