its quite absurb to continue refering to the swazi king as the "the last absolute monach", one may conqure that you have to be a Swazi to understand the complexities of the Swazi system of government. though like any other system of government has got its weackness. the king rule buy consultation, offwhich the problem lies within the swazi society at large. for instance the current constitution gives more powers to the king because people summited that views openly during the exercise in various centres. onother problem might be the fact that most Swazis are not participatory. the few who are vocal and claim to represent interest of the swazi people should stop badmouthing the country and take part in elections inorder to change the system from within. movements such as pudemo should its hightime for its members to het rid of their leaders because they have let them domn in most instances. firstly they resinged from the Commision (CRC) which was a goldern opportunity to influence the views of the people. secondly, its clear that they may breed a kind of democracy similar to that of Zimbabwe if given an opportunity when considerig that since its founding we've been seeing one and the same faces in their leadership. on my opinion i think swaziland can do better with the current system of governance by overwhouling it to meet the so called starndards of global liberal democracy. however,
