Political Parties Picketed on the Streets of Mbabane Eswatini

Political Parties picketed on the streets of Mbabane to protest against the demolition of houses belonging to farm dwellers at Gege, near the border with South Africa.

Para military police officers brutally assaulted the marchers and injured three of them, while a few were arrested this morning. The delivery of petitions by a large number of protestors is not allowed in Eswatini, since 2021.
