Swaziland Members of Parliament say they are being bannedfrom the radio airwaves by the government.
They say it is because of a policy made by the Swazi Cabinet.
A row erupted in the House of Assembly when MPs accused Prime Minister Barnabas Dlamini of keeping them off the airwaves. In Swaziland broadcasting is state controlled and the PM is editor-in-chief of the SBIS radio stations and the Swazi TV Channel.
Dlamini said MPs could not go on air without the permission of their areas' chiefs. He said it was wrong for them to just go on radio with issues which the chiefs were not even aware of.[view whole blog post ]
