Old Trade Fair turned into a sex den

Swazi Observer - - NATIONAL NEWS - By Si­fiso Nh­la­batsi Manzini

THE old Trade Fair has turned into a sex den.

The fa­cil­ity has also been turned into a haven for all un­ac­cept­able be­hav­iour, as a re­sult, the mu­nic­i­pal­ity has since de­cided to crack the whip on whoso­ever will be found tres­pass­ing at the place.

Manzini Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer Mathokoza Th­wala urged peo­ple against tres­pass­ing and us­ing the place for sor­did ac­tiv­i­ties.

He warned the pub­lic against tres­pass­ing into the Old Trade Fair.

“We would like to state that the Old Trade Fair is out of bounds as it is a project site wherein a big project is ear­marked to take place. As such, any­one found loi­ter­ing in it is com­mit­ting a crim­i­nal of­fence,” he said.

Th­wala said so bad is the sit­u­a­tion such that even school go­ing chil­dren are usu­ally found loi­ter­ing at the Old Trade Fair.

He has since urged par­ents to speak to their chil­dren against do­ing such. He said coun­cil, through its se­cu­rity com­pany which is Kwekwe Se­cu­rity Rangers, to­gether with the Royal Eswa­tini Po­lice (REP), have al­ready started con­duct­ing raids at the old Trade Fair.

He said these pa­trols would be in­ten­si­fied go­ing for­ward and any­one caught will be ar­rested and charged with tres­pass­ing.

Th­wala said Manzini has a num­ber of recre­ational parks in the city and if peo­ple want to re­lax with their friends and loved ones they can make use of the parks in­stead of tres­pass­ing at the Old Trade Fair.
