Politics

Can Sithole really change the system from within?

The first sitting of parliament was one big circus, the clown at the centre of it all being Ndvuna Dlamini, the clerk to parliament whose moment of wielding power seemed to overwhelm him. The election of trade unionist, Jan Sithole, to parliament seems to have shaken the leadership of this country.

Agriculture

Itís the seed that has the money

From Swaziland to Zimbabwe, in this hostile climate environment that has brought drought to many, seed production seems to be the way to go.International organisations have targeted women to grow seeds for resale, a move that has tremendously improved the lives of women in the communities where the projects are undertaken.


Opinion

What will the First World status bring us?

The question has to be asked of what character, shape or form this first world status we seek will take? Every year we see many people from the western world come to our country to enjoy the peace and tranquillity but, more importantly, the innocence of the life we live as they escape the cut-throat world where money rules.

Judiciary

There is no doubt in any discerning mind that those closest to King Mswati enjoy protection from the operation of the law. The matter of Chief Justice Michael Ramodibedi is a case in point. He has been suspended in his home country of Lesotho and is facing charges that include criminal behavior.
