JOHANNESBURG - An Eswatini government spokesperson has landed himself in hot water after making disturbing claims about South Africa. Alpheous Nxumalo responded to allegations from the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) former Secretary-General Godrich Gardee that King Mswati III had a hand in the murder of Hillary Gardee.
Nxumalo responded to Gardee’s tweet and said that he should be working towards reducing the high level of crime in the country rather than constructing conspiracy theories. According to The Citizen, Nxumalo added that Gardee’s daughter fell victim to a criminal infestation.

The department’s spokesperson, Clayson Monyela, told SABC News that Nxumalo’s statements were inaccurate. He said Dirco would seek an audience with diplomatic representation and that the organisation does not accept the characterisation from Nxumalo.
Monyela said it’s an unfortunate statement and that the organisation would not allow South Africa to be insulted. He added that the country has an excellent relationship with the King of Eswatini.
South Africans react to the comments:
“We are sorry for your loss Godrich, please go and grieve (A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgement unto truth)… this propaganda you are peddling is not helping you, just leave the matter with law enforcement.”
