    Is Swaziland the next Libya?

    Is Swaziland, a tiny, impoverished, AIDS-ridden country, the next Libya?
    Union leaders and pro-democracy activists seem divided as to how to proceed with fighting to overthrow Swaziland's monarchy, according to Associated Press and Canadian Press.

    For the second day in a row police used more force to quell protests, bursting into the teacher union’s headquarters where more than 300 teachers were singing liberation songs, chanting and dancing. Police fired tear gas and used water cannons to disperse the crowd. Some teachers hid in nearby bushes.

    Police have stormed a press conference, searched reporters and told union leaders that protesters could not say at union headquarters overnight. Two armed police vehicles were stationed outside.

    Sibongile Mazibuko, president of the Swaziland National Association of Teachers, was detained, then released and has since gone into hiding.

    But will the protests turn into the fierce pro-democracy movement that has captured the hearts of the population of many other African nations?

    Hata wakianza kuchinjana, wataachwa wachinjane mpaka waelewane. Nchi haina maslahi kabisa kwa wababe wa magharibi. Kanchi kadogo, hakana wazungu wengi, wala rasilimali za maana. Sana sana South Africa watakuwa pressured kuhakikisha kunakuwa na amani, lakini washikaji wa magharibi hawataingilia.
