THE Election Boundaries Commission (EBC) has warned aspiring members of parliament to refrain from making empty promises during the ongoing campaign exercise.
Speaking on behalf of EBC, Mbonisi Bhembe, who was speaking about the ongoing campaign projects, commended emaSwati for showing up in the organized elections campaigns to hear out what the nominated promised to help them develop their communities or change their lives.
Bhembe said that he believes that those who are nominated are in constant check of how their communities can be developed going forward. However, Bhembe said that EBC who conducts the elections has warned those nominated not to make empty promises to emaSwati when delivering their campaign speeches.
The empty promises may include the promise to build infrastructure without having the
muscle or visible means to implement them. On the demarcation of job responsibilities between members of parliament, Bucopho and Indvuna Yenkhundla, Bhembe said it’s a tricky situation because all these positions are about community development. He added that all these personnel should work together to make the life of Emaswati better and asked Tindvuna Tenkhundla to focus more on making sure that community disputes are resolved swiftly.
