I might be wrong, and for our sake, I h Manzini

I might be wrong, and for our sake, I hope 🙏 I am.


Judging by the prolonged, no-apology period, or conceding to accountability for the June/July massacre, I don't foresee our leaders, especially the Man 👨 himself, agreeing to dialogue. Ominously, the signals emanating from his recent speeches, indicate to me, and a few others, that there's little or no intention at all from him to settle this powderkeg situation, once and for all, for the good of the country.


The dynasty had been in power 💪 for too long...far too long. From their warped thinking 🤔, the country belongs to them. According to their sinister belief, the masses are merely squatters. They are doing us a favour by allowing us to live in the county. In their books 📚, siyababangisa by demanding a share in the running 🏃 of the country. To them we are insurgents, rabble-rousers, terrorists who are disrupting their warped kind of "democracy."


To them, democracy means the ascendancy, and superiority of the Dlamini royal clan over what they've shown to be their birthright - the kingdom of Eswatini. Remember, how the name Swaziland 🇸🇿 was changed to. Eswatini, without any consultation whosoever?


This blatant disregard of the sentiments of the people is proof that the Man 👨 is literally above the Supreme Law of the land. In fact, as it has been said by some closer to the pillars of power 💪,, he IS the Constitution itself.


I'm no soothsayer, fortune-teller, nor prophet of doom.. But I am fearful 😨.of the future. We are seriously heading for a showdown....we are heading for confrontation. A bloody one. More bloody than the recent June /July massacre.


Consider how no outright and convincing apology has so far come out from government. All they are intent on, is resuscitating business establishments - no intention whatsoever of accepting responsibility for the unprecedented massacre of some of the people..


Last time I checked, the sanctity of life was, and still is priceless. It is unquestionably divine in the eyes 👀 of the Creator..


God will not leave the guilty unpunished. Of that I am totally convincing. We are headed for brutal times. The dynasty will use again the might of its army to crush what it calls terrorists.


Sadly, lessons from history are often disregarded by those in power 💪. You cannot fight your own people as a leader - and hope 🙏 to triumph...In end, the will of the people triumph as victors. We've seen it happening countless times across the globe 🌎.

War is evil..


I wake up this morning thinking deeply about war..I ask myself what drives men like Putin to take a civilized world back to the days of medieval times, where barbarians like the Visigoths, the Vandals ransacked cities like Rome, during ancient times.


War is devastating. It has so many serious side effects - hunger, disease, is devastating, and very stressful.. Above all, it brings hatred to the invaded, that will last for generations. Putin is taking us back to barbaric times.


I'm glad the world is in solidarity, condemning, and taking action against Russia. It is sanctions, left, right and centre.


Coming closer home in Swaziland, there are deranged people who want to take us down to barbaric times, where disputes were solved through throttling each other. We are on the road to war, unless some people use their brains instead of thinking violence solved political conflict.


War is deadly. It creates refugees. I don't want my children to live as refugees in neighboring countries, because one clique refuses to embrace change, and the will of the masses.


Let's pray and resist this evil perpetrated by Putin and leaders in autocratic regimes like Swaziland and Zimbabwe..

Leaders are mandated to lead with intergrity.


Abuse of power has led to conflicts which have divided a nation's people..Human greed has brought enmity and hatred between leaders and the grassroot people in my country. Violence now reigns supreme.


Our people have crossed the Rubicon of tolerance. Corruption has divided our people into two camps. Only wholesale changes in leadership and the ushering of democratic changes can save my country from anarchy and civil war.


Swaziland, my country, beg the world to pray for us!

DENOUNCE..TAKE ACTION!


Every decent human being, living in this country has an obligation to denounce, and condemn Evil.


We all have to take action against evil and its accessories. Failure to contribute in whatever way in the quest by others to eradicate evil, and/or look the other way as evil men violate the rights of our fellowmen, is the greatest travesty of human decency.


In our midst, we have people who are as good as condoning evil by their failure to partake in the efforts of moral men who sacrificed their freedom in order to make our country a safe place to live in, free from the influences, clutches, and tentacles of a system of government headed by a warlord who believes he is God-ordained to lead a people, cause then to buckle under his cruel leadership.


None of us, was born with hatred in his heart - including the very leaders who use evil force to oppress, jail and kill those who stand up against their evil. We are now consumed by hatred. It is manifesting itself in many ways - anger, violence, intolerance, killing our partners in cold blood, etc. We have become an angry Nation..


Thinking deeply during moments of solitude, about the evil that is taking place in this country, tears my heart into shreds. Standing on the fence while ungodly men destroy whatever semblance of sanity left, is not moral.


Let us all stand up against evil. God will give us the power to triumph over evil...because He hates evil. Let us all join hands, contribute morally to the fight against evil...We are living dangerously in this country. None of us is safe from the evils of the system. If we allow evil to run rampant and have free reign, the Lord help us!


Good morning, a blessed Monday and safe week.

Meet the 78 years old High school graduate Ted Sams...


It was a joyfull moment for Ted Sams (78) and his family when he finally walked on stage to receive his high school diploma sixty years after he missed his 1962 graduation because of some teenage mischief and $4.80 (E3.40) overdue library fine he owed at his former school.


During his high school days, Ted and a friend were in a photography class when they were caught by the vice principal for photographing people without their consent and Ted was later suspended, leading to him missing the final exam and graduation. While he tried keeping up with his studies by attending summer school, Ted then found that he couldn't get his diploma because of the overdue library fine book.


“So I just walked away from it and said, 'Forget it',” he says.


In 2022, after much persuasion from his family Ted joined San Gabriel California High school in Los Angeles and got his high school diploma


Sams says he never expected to be back in high school 60 years later after he dropped out. He recounted how he would repeatedly complain to his children how a meagre $4.80 kept him from having a degree.


His daughter Sherry then suprised him by asking San Gabriel High in Los Angeles for a reprint of his diploma so he can attend graduation.


Luckily for him, the school hasn't thrown away the diploma and It was kept in a box, in senior archives.


In 27 May, Ted received an invitation from the school to be part of the graduation ceremony. The ceremony was attended by his wife and five children.


Even though it has been a long hard road, Ted says attaining his diploma has been a great achievement for him and the graduation was one of the highlights of his life.


“Actually, when he walked and got his diploma, every person on that stage hugged him and then the whole class applauded for him,” Sherry says.


Although the $4.80 fine hasn't been paid, Ted is now a graduate of San Gabriel High School's class of 2022.

"The Ministry has a responsibility, amongst others to oveeseer conservation and sustainable use of natural resources, which is delegated to the Eswatini National Trust Commission" he said.


The launch tabbed, 'Only One Earth' occurred during the World Environmental Month and aims to promote activities that support the conservation and sustainable use of natural resources such as water, land and minerals which also tend not only to bolsters the people's lives but also attracts tourists in a country thus it's economy.


According to Vilakati, tourism is one of the pillars in the country's economic development agenda. He says the government had a wakeup call from the COVID-19 pandemic because it forced it to expand the country's domestic tourism initiatives througn enhanced product development while introducing different adventure promotions.


Vilakati further urged companies and institutions to partner with the government in hosting the event which he described as a perfect epitome of the 'Only One Earth' theme of the environmental month.


He went on saying, "This will provide an opportunity for most companies and institutions to partner with us in hosting a successful event.

In this way, the tourism economy will increase and enable extended sharing of benefits."

I have recently started a book about a young woman in Eswatini whose personal journey depicts the hardships faced by almost every woman in the country. Below is an excerpt...

EXILED: Losing Thabo


"Don't tell me you have never wanted to see justice done for all the injustices you have suffered! That you haven't wished for your baby's killer to be tried in a fair court of law, instead of roaming free as if he is innocent while we know he's not. That you haven't longed for retribution against your employees who fired you for your political views just because they don't align with theirs. This is our time sis', to right the wrongs done to us by this unjust system. It's time we fought for what is rightfully ours! We can't be governed by a bunch of individuals who priorities money over the people's welfare. Government officials who accept bribes and look the other way while someone is being killed. It's time we take back the power because it belongs to us. Time has run out for this cruel regime which silences us by using guns and brutality and if you do not join the fight now, who will fight for you when they do come for you, because they will?"


Tears trickled down Lindiwe's cheek as she listened to her brothers passionate please. She hung her head in defeat as the inevitability of the situation struck her, she could feel it in her bones that this was it. With her life stripped bare of all possibilities of a bright future she had no other option but to fight

A COLD DOSE OF REALITY


A month back, a colleague who later became a friend quoted a common phrase, but I could feel it resonating deep in my heart and leaving a cold chill slithering down my spine. He said, "Gender Based Violence is the face of a woman".


I remember trying to push it to the back of my mind but to this day my attempts are still in vain; for i still bear sleepless nights because of the nightmarish ordeals I have suffered in the hands of men (the lovers, friends, relatives). I don't think I will ever feel completely safe while in the presence of men. I don't think I could ever love nor trust so deeply because of men. Yes! You say there are not all monsters; but how are we as women suppose to differentiate cause the monsters start as promising lovers, brothers & relatives.


Honestly though, I despair that I was born in such a country where the marginalisation of women has been standardised such that even the women themselves have accepted it as a norm.


Eswatini, my country; women are much more than broodmares, cooks, victims of abuse. Our presence equals that of a thousand men. If you pay my bride price, that doesn't mean you own me. If I submit under you, that doesn't mean I am yours to do as you will... I am much more than just a woman; I am your future

Do you toss and turn in bed every night? Do you watch the clock as your wake-up time mercilessly approaches and only manage to fall asleep at some point in the morning? Have you been counting sheep for hours and still can't sleep?


Everybody sometimes can't fall asleep. The problem is when this condition lasts a long time or recurs frequently.


Professionally, the condition where you cannot fall asleep is called insomnia. It is dangerous and it is not pleasant to play with it. Sleep is vital for a person. A person suffering from insomnia cannot fall asleep or wakes up frequently.

Common symptoms are:


- difficulty falling asleep at night.


- waking up early in the morning without the ability to go back to sleep.


- frequent nighttime awakenings


- night watch, confusion of day and night

Prostate enlargement usually occurs in men with age. The enlargement can be benign or malignant.

If classified as benign, the enlarged prostate is called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). As for whether it is malignant, it will lead to prostate cancer.


Although it does not endanger the life of the victim, the complaints that arise due to an enlarged prostate are very disturbing activities.


Some people who have an enlarged prostate will feel dissatisfied when urinating.


Symptoms can include a weak urinary stream, increased frequency of urination, frequent awakenings at night, and an inability to hold back the urge to urinate.


In severe cases, an enlarged prostate can cause urinary retention, which is a condition in which a person is unable to excrete urine that is in the bladder.


To overcome the prostate, whether to surgery? Actually, the action to treat this condition depends on the severity.


The main goal of treating an enlarged prostate is to improve the patient's quality of life. The therapy offered also varies, depending on the severity of the symptoms experienced.


To determine the severity, the doctor will perform a series of tests including:


- International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) test score.


- Lab tests, such as urinalysis, prostate- specific antigen (PSA), and kidney function.


- Urophlometry (evaluation of the urine stream), calculation of residual urine.


- Images of the prostate that can be an ultrasound exam.

EDK Media attends a film, music and dance workshop in Umlazi


Ezase Durban Media KZN better known as EDK Media is a Film and TV production company established back in 2011, based in the heart of Durban KwaZulu-Natal. It offers a variety of services including: TV Presenting Training, Photoshoots, TV Shows, Documentaries, Events management and many more.


On Friday the 15th of July 2022, EDK Media production team attended an art workshop in Umlazi, the south eastern part of KwaZulu-Natal which was held in Umlazi Cinema Hall.


The event was solely based on ways that the youth could utilize to venture into the corporate sector and the entertainment industry. The gap has been identified, that the youth is seeking employment rather than self employment. With the unemployment rate at its peak in South Africa, it is crystal clear that having a degree does not automatically translate to employment.


Dignitaries and speakers from different places graced the event with their presence, amongst which Mr Xolani Dlamini, the founder and event organizer of Urban Arts Entertainment attended. Menzi Theo (executive director of EDK Media), Bella Mnyandu and Smangele Sokhela commended the event organizers for pulling off such a great event in such a short space of time.


We still have a long way ahead to ensure that our government is democratically accountable for its people and for the young people to be granted equal opportunity. We're hopeful that events of this nature make a dent.
