Swazi student leader Maxwell Dlamini and his co-accused Musa Ngubeni were granted bail of E50,000 by the Swaziland High Court today (20 December 2011).
The bail is believed to be one of the highest amounts ever set by a Swazi court.
The total E100,000 is to be paid in cash before the release will go ahead. Bail conditions, including having to report to police four times a week, have also been set.
Maxwell and Ngubeni are accused of possessing explosives. They were arrested in April 2011 at the time of the biggest pro-democracy demonstration in Swaziland’s history and have been remanded in jail since.
