Students are accused of damaging and burning property believed to belong to members of the police and soldiers who were part of the attack launched against them by King Mswati’s army and police at the university of eSwatini on Tuesday.

Retaliation by students also led to the alleged shooting of a police officer who has since been hospitalised.

Pudemo, head of international relations, Siboniso Mkhabela said “There was retaliation by the pro-democracy forces whereby a police officer was shot in revenge, we don’t know if he is still alive but he has been admitted to hospital and also a big house of a soldier was burnt to ashes yesterday. The youth is angry and vengeful and we are anticipating more incidents during the course of the week.”

Maseko is said to be recovering at Mkhiwa clinic in Manzini where he is expected to remain another night due to the degree of his injuries.
