The Communist Party of Swaziland (CPS) yesterday (27 March 2011) announced that it would launch in the kingdom next month.

This is a direct challenge to the rule of King Mswati III, sub-Saharan Africa’s last absolute monarch.

According to the CPS strategic programme (in full below), ‘The CPS is entering the struggle at a point when there is more than ever a need for direction and leadership to set Swaziland on a course to socialism through a revolutionary transformation of society. This will put an end to the capitalist system and Swaziland’s system of monarchic-autocratic governance (the latter imposed through the tinkhundla system) both of which exist in symbiosis, though the monarchic autocracy rests on a distorted and eccentric application of aspects of traditional rule to support a system of monarchic dictatorship (autocracy).’
