Barnabas Dlamini, the illegally-appointed Prime Minister of Swaziland, is victimising the senate leader who said he and the Swazi government are answerable to parliament.

Senate President Gelane Zwane pointed out what everyone who understands democracies knows, that there should be a separation of powers between the legislature, the executive and the judiciary.

But Dlamini said: No. He was in charge of everything and not answerable to parliament.

Now as punishment for speaking the truth, Dlamini has decided that Zwane cannot travel outside of Swaziland on official business without his permission.

It’s a very petty move from the Prime Minister, but one entirely in keeping with him: he will bully anyone who stands in his way.
