Eswatini Daily News


The former Minister for Public Works and Transport Ntuthuko Dlamini says he is very sick and now fears that his health condition will be worsened by the deadly COVID-19. The Eswatini Observer reported this on today’s publication. 

Dlamini, who is accused of double murder and attempted murder, yesterday (04th February 2021) filed papers in his bail application at the High Court where he submitted that he has been receiving treatment from nurses at His Majesty’s Correctional Services nurses since the beginning of the month.

However, he told the court that his condition has not gotten any better and he now fears that COVID-19 will take its toll on him due to his age, as reported on the publication.

The 50-year-old former legislator told the court that the conditions at the correctional facility were not conducive for his health due to the congestion of inmates; hence he wants out of jail and pleads with the court to release him on bail pending trial. Dlamini through his lawyer Noncedo Ndlangamandla has filed the urgent application for bail.

He was arrested for allegedly gunning down two members of the Luyengweni Royal Kraal inner council and further attempting to kill another.

He was further charged with contravening the arms and ammunition act in that his gun was found to have not been licenced.

The bail application is still pending at the High Court as the office of the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) is vigorously opposing his application.
