May Day Appreciation Message
The President and the entire leadership of SWALIMO appreciates the support that was given to the workers federation TUCOSWA.  SWALIMO believes that TUCOSWA is us and we are TUCOSWA as the federation houses all Swazis who are politically and non-politically aligned.  The workers are faced with all sorts of challenges that all culminate to poor political decisions from this regime. Recently, it has become clear that this government will soon have no money to pay civil servants like they are failing to pay students allowances. We cannot fail to mention the issues around: 1. COLA 2. FUEL HIKES 3. FIVE BILLION EMALANGENI LOAN and other issues that affect the day to day lives of workers.
