Where does the Swaziland United Democratic Front (SUDF) go from here?

That’s the subject of Peter Kenworthy’s recent stiffkittenblog.

He looks at the history of the SUDF and some of the challenges it faces today (lack of clear political vision, issues of leadership, personal ambition and lack of communication, a lack of discipline and decent behaviour within the democratic movement).

But there are also reasons to be positive for the future, since the SUDF is one of the few organisations that seriously and consistently advocates democracy in the kingdom.

Kenworthy interviewed the following people between 30 August and 5 September 2010 for his article: Mario Masuku, PUDEMO president; Wandile Dludlu, SWAYOCO president; Jan Sithole, former SFTU secretary-general; Bheki Makhubu, The Nation editor; Morten Nielsen, Africa Contact; Mduduzi Gina, SFTU secretary-general; Vincent Ncongwane, SUDF and SFL secretary-general; and a Street Vendors conference on 1 September.
