Leader of the Official Opposition and president of the Popular Democratic Movement McHenry Venaani has called on the Southern African Development Community to institute a process of mediation into the crisis of the Kingdom of eSwatini. The Namibia press agency quotes Venaani as saying that while he welcomes recent efforts of SADC Organ on Politics, Defence and Security to embark on a fact-finding mission to the Kingdom of Eswatini, it is undeniably clear that there exists an urgent need for the organ to return to the country as the situation is extremely delicate and tension continues to grow. Venaani further noted that whilst he respects the independence of the Kingdom of Eswatini, he maintains the view that the citizens have the right to protest freely and peacefully and that the will of the people must always be respected.
