IN response to “Al­liance ‘wor­ried’ over new SADC chair” ( Le­sotho Times, 1 Septem­ber 2016) how can the re­gional bloc let the con­tro­ver­sial Swazi­land King Mswati III

(pic­tured) who knows ab­so­lutely noth­ing about the will of the peo­ples nor prac­tises democ­racy take over the reins of SADC?

I think SADC needs to re­con­sider its un­just pol­icy of let­ting un­demo­cratic coun­tries such as Swazi­land take full mem­ber­ship of the bloc or be­ing in­volved in its de­ci­sion-mak­ing pro­cesses.

That will likely com­pro­mise the progress made in en­sur­ing coun­tries like Le­sotho abide by the demo­cratic tra­jec­tory set by SADC.

Sempe Ma­supha.
