Quotes

""There is a bad habit that has come to the attention of the authorities that there are some people who still choose to defy the chief and do not recognise a man who has been appointed by the King. Where have you ever heard of that? This is the person who has been chosen to take over from Mfanwenkhosi Maseko and I have been sent by His Majesty to order that there be complete silence in this place," said the tough talking Mtetwa."
"The Swazi community still needs to be educated on how to be self-reliant instead of relying on handouts. Women in rural communities are left stranded when handouts are cut" said Mazibuko
"As we saw this weekend, the king would rather lose Swaziland’s textile industry than allow political dialogue in his kingdom" said Ndwandwe. – Independent Foreign Service The Mercury

He was later forced to resign from the government and the Senate
