A new Facebook group was created today (24 March 2011) to campaign for democracy in Swaziland.

It is called My New Democratic Swaziland.

The group says it is 'dedicated to all the people of this country who are not just against Tinkhundla misrule but also have ideas how this country can be transformed into a democratic, vibrant, peaceful and prosperious society.

'This group aims to collect the widest possible views about the aspirations of Swazis, what they want to do and how they want it to be done. It aims to make Swazis drivers of their own destiny.

'Many in Swaziland are in agreement that the present system of governance is flawed but there not been as yet a platform where we can share what we want to see in a new Swaziland.

'We believe that NEVER again shall the destiny of this country be decided by a tiny minority whether in political parties or not. This group will also assist those with ambition to govern the country to know exactly what Swazis want.

'Members of this group are encouraged to tell the world what kind of society they want to see from political, social and economic standpoint.'
