The brutality of the citizens of eSwatini has been condemned by lots of people, including South African celebrities.
Video clips showing how people are being ill-treated and tortured to death have gone viral on social media, and the likes of Somizi, Amanda du-Pont have spoken against it.
Amanda shared a note on social media and expressed how heartbroken she feels.
“My people are in trouble and their lives at risk as we speak! Please I need your help to spread the word. I have been silent in fear of my family’s lives who are in eSwatini, that they might be targeted. This is a revolution and we as the youth and promise of tomorrow stand up against an absolute monarchy! The king is having unarmed civilians shot who are caught in the streets, a ridiculous curfew has been implemented at 6 pm and human rights violated by shutting down the internet so the rest of the world doesn’t hear of the news.
There are threats of shutting electricity. What is happening is a crime against humanity. The people are fighting for a multi-party democracy and basic human rights taken away by the monarchy. The majority of our country is poverty-stricken and has had enough of the repressive government,” the actress said.
