The Swazi Democratic Party (SWADEPA) and other groups are slated to hold a demonstration - dubbed the Budget vs. People's Needs March - in Manzini on Friday, April 12. Organizers indicate demonstrators will gather at Somhlolo Jubilee Park at 08:00 (local time) and march to Manzini Bus Rank from 09:30. A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are likely along the march route. Clashes between protesters and police cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in the area are advised to avoid all protests and gatherings as a precaution, monitor the situation, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
