President Cyril Ramaphosa has urged King Mswati III of Eswatini to restore peace to his country.Demonstrators in Eswatini are calling for democratic reforms and the release of the two MPs who have been detained.
Last week, Ramaphosa dispatched a special envoy to the monarchy, led by Jeff Radebe, to try to put an end to the bloodshed.
According to Ramaphosa, the Eswatini government must restore stability to South Africa's neighbor.He says he wants the Southern African Development Community (SADC) to be a peaceful zone.
"Before that, I spoke with the King and expressed my deep concern about the situation there." I'd like you to meet my envoy, who is delivering a message from me to the region. “The message is unmistakable,” Ramaphosa says.
"We want Eswatini to be at peace, and we'd want to see a discussion between the government and other organizations begin." On the phone, I told him, "I'd like you to enable the envoy to meet you and then meet with other stakeholders." That is the condition under which I shall dispatch this envoy. "He agreed," President Ramaphosa explains.
King Mswati has summoned residents and pro-democracy organizations to a conference. Meanwhile, in Eswatini, the People's United Democratic Movement (PUDEMO) anticipates that the envoys sent by President Cyril Rampahosa would bring about change.
The people of Eswatini are motivated to reform the country, according to PUDEMO, and King Mswati III should be compelled to quit power.
South Africa should impose sanctions on the monarch, according to PUDEMO President Mlungisi Makhanya.The people of eSwatini have tried to change the situation in their county for years now but have yet to succeed.
