ZimVigil supporters had to search Mayfair on Tuesday when Swazi despot Mswati and his entourage of 50 failed to turn up at London’s deluxe Dorchester Hotel to stay for the Royal Wedding.  

About 80 demonstrators had gathered outside the hotel to support the Swaziland Vigil which had arranged a picket of protest against Mswati’s oppressive rule – only to find that the Swazi freeloaders had gone to the nearby Four Seasons Hotel. 

Mswati had obviously got the message as members of his entourage at the Four Seasons were overheard talking about our demonstration which had attracted much media attention with protesters carrying posters such as ‘Swazi King parties while country starves’ and ‘Royal Wedding guests are human rights abusers’.  

The demonstration obviously embarrassed the Dorchester who made desperate efforts to contact the police to have us moved on to the Four Seasons. 

The Swaziland Vigil now plans to demonstrate outside the Four Seasons at 6.30 pm on Saturday when Mswati is holding a reception.   

Swaziland Vigil co-ordinator Thobile Gwebu said ‘Mswati must understand that things have changed. He is now an endangered species – only safe in his Zoo’.
