STATEMENT ON THE ASSASINATION OF THULANI MASEKO IN ESWATINI
The Denis Hurley Peace Institute was shocked to learn of the assassination of Thulani Maseko on Sunday 23 January 2023, in the early morning in front of his house.
His death has silenced a crucial voice representing the opinion of many Eswatini citizens, and raises levels of fear and tension.
We express our condolences to his wife, family and loved ones.
We pray that his death will not be in vain, but will underline the urgency to find a negotiated solution to the situation of unrest.
We urge the Eswatini authorities to leave no stone unturned in the search for the perpetrators. We continue to pray for peace, justice and reconciliation in Eswatini.
