Excellent
29 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

We thank you about the excellent work done on this documentary. I am not surprised at some comments that this piece of excellent work is biased. All those that have benefited from this regime shall cry foul, because you can not spit on your sit. There is serious brutality and a highest level of intimidation. It should be noted, that in Swaziland- which could have been covered is that decisions of the courts cannot be adhered to. As i write, the commissioner of police is in contempt of court and cannot be booked. The judges of the court of appeal had resigned enmasse due to non implementation of courts judgements for persons who are friends and cronies to the regime. Corruption and theft is the order of the day. Millionares have mushroomed in a day and no one cares, so long as you are below the royal umbrella. People have been displaced by forced removal from land of birth and some self exiled with fear of state brutality. I say this masterpiece just gave a clue of the real Swaziland. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR WORK, MAY THE ALMIGHTY BLESS YOU ALL.
