Lutfo Dlamini, Swaziland’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, who was arrested today (13 January 2011) will be released tonight and will not face charges.
According to a usually reliable source, Lutfo Dlamini has been saved by the intervention of the Queen Mother, who is said to have told the King not to proceed with a prosecution.
Lutfo Dlamini, will however be sacked from the Swazi Government. What will happen to him next is unclear.
Earlier today, the Swaziland Solidarity Network in a media statement reported that Lutfo Dlamini’s ‘secret lover the queen mother “Ntombi Ftwala” has seen to it that he is well cloaked in the infamous Royal blanket against corruption charges’.
