An arrest warrant has been issued for the arrest of Swazi dissident Mfomfo Nkhmabule.

Nkhmabule has been under attack for his views on the lack of democracy in Swaziland and the role of King Mswati III, sub-Saharan Africa’s last absolute monarch.

On his own website, Nkhmabule reports:

‘There is to be a warrant issued for my arrest under the anti terrorism Laws of Swaziland, today (Sunday 1t May 2009).

‘This is most likely as a result of starting this website and speaking against the current regime in my Country. But fear not divided we stand, divided we fall and this site will continue with or without me.

‘We call upon the International Community and our regular watchers here to show support in writing both here, and, to your local MP in your country, the EU and the UN to help bring light upon our plight and suffering in this struggle for humanity.

‘The time Zimbabwe has passed, now it is the time for Swaziland to fight for its freedom and democracy in the World.

‘Why does the Commonwealth remain silent in such matters and yet so vociferous towards Zimbabwe? Where are the Americans and the British when you need them most?

‘It is time to stand up and shout about Swaziland and stop the death and corruption with its global repercussions. We have enlightened you to the Beef you are eating in the EU and yet nothing is heard, does nobody hear when there is an election on?

‘We will keep you posted on events as they unravel……’
