King Mswati says no one has the mandate to kill, nothing justifies killing another person

By Sifiso Sibandze

His Majesty King Mswati III has stressed that no one has the mandate to kill another person, and nothing justifies that any person should be killed.

The highly-spirited King made this pronouncement when delivering his sermon at Mandvulo Grand Hall, during the National Prayer held on Saturday.

“The remarks made by President Zuma reminded me of when we were at the AU launching the silencing of guns by 2030 campaign some years ago, I did not think we could hear the sounds of guns in the country where people were killed. There is no one who has the mandate to kill, and nothing justifies the killing of each other. In whatever you want, you must not kill because no one deserves to lose his or her life,” the King stressed.

The King then warned those who are involved in the killing of emaSwati to refrain from perpetrating the violence.

“We hope all those providing arms and training those involved in the killing of emaSwati are hearing us that we are concerned about their nefarious deeds, and they should stop what they are perpetuating. We condemn the killing of one another and pray for the silencing of guns in the Kingdom,” His Majesty said.

The King went on to focus on developing the economy and not creating other problems over and above those which had been brought about by the effects of Covid-19 and the Russia-Ukraine war.
