THE Communist Party of Swaziland (CPS) said yesterday it was “deeply concerned” for two student leaders being hunted by the kingdom’s police.
Swaziland National Union of Students (SNUS) deputy secretary-general Nchubeko Maziya and treasurer Neliswa Sifundza were apparently targeted after attending a CPS summer school in neighbouring South Africa over the Christmas holidays.
CPS general secretary Kenneth Kunene said that on January 2 four officers harassed SNUS chair Mphilolenhle Dlamini, who did not attend the school, demanding to know how the pair and CPS national organiser Njabulo Dlamini were connected.
Before the start of term about 30 plain-clothes police descended on the William Pitcher Teacher Training College in Manzini, where the two wanted SNUS leaders are studying. Students have been pressed to identify the pair, who were keeping a low profile around the campus.
