Abstract:This article describes the current political situation in Swaziland. Repression by the anti-democratic, corrupt monarchy and resultant popular resistance continues to mark a Swaziland political scene deeply impacted by a closely related socio-economic crisis. From time to time, the regime appears to make concessions but continued protests and growing possibilities of wider solidarity and international sanctions could force a showdown if such pressure is intensified.
