SAFA bus donated to eSwatini petrol bombed

Premiership

A bus donated by SAFA to the eSwatini Football Association after the World Cup 2010 has been petrol bombed by arsonists in Mbabane in the early hours of Sunday morning.

According to eSwatini online publication Swaziland News, the bus is used by the Swazi national team, nicknamed Sihlangu Semnikati as political parties continue to call for democratic reforms in the region.

Different political groups and activists from eSwatini recently staged a protest at the Mbombela Stadium during a CAF Confederation Cup match between Royal Leopards and Orlando Pirates while demanding CAF ban the Swazi police team after armed forces allegedly killed more than 100 civilians since the start of the political unrest in last year June.

"It's true that we have bombed the bus, but we consider these as minor bombings, we have major targets and we will attack more in the coming days," Swaziland International Solidarity Forces are quoted as saying.

"It's true that the incident did happen, but my position doesn't allow me to comment on it because of protocols.

Radebe said he is still yet to be briefed about the accident that happened at the eSwatini football association premises in Mbabane on Sunday.

"I am far away in Nelspruit and we just finished playing against Somalia. I only see the pictures on social media," he added.
