PUDEMO Condemns shooting of students
The people’s United Democratic Movement-PUDEMO condemns the shooting of peacefully demonstrating students in the Swazi capital Mbabane. A number of them have been taken into hospital for sustaining serious injuries. The students are protesting the closure of the university and the denial of scholarships for deserving students.
This is barbaric actions by the police and the government. Our children have a right to education.
The Government is denying our children the right to education while their children are studying comfortably in universities around the world. A lot of money is lost through corruption and theft.
The activities continue today and PUDEMO calls for more radical action.
