WHAT’S TRENDING?
 

• Vaccination of 12 to 17 year olds is now available, as expected there has been some mixed reaction to this.

ZOOMING INTO ESWATINI

Time to go to our third segment where we zoom into a country and today we are taking you to Eswatini. 

Southern African countries have deployed envoys to Eswatini, formerly known as Swaziland, to try to stem the unrest that saw one person killed and at least 80 people wounded by security forces in the latest wave of pro-democracy protests.  

The demonstrations in the kingdom have flared up recently, months after authorities loyal to the country’s absolute monarch quashed an earlier round of demonstrations. Channel Africa’s Bulletin editor Siphephile Kunene on the latest.
