Swaziland's Prime Minister Barnabas Dlamini told the House of Assembly that MPs needed a workshop so they could understand what their responsibilities were.
He told them that they did not understand the principle of 'separation of powers' between the executive (government ministers and their departments), the legislative (parliament) and the judiciary (judges and the courts).
He said parliament had an important responsibility but seemingly, it overlapped sometimes with his government, the Swazi Observer newspaper reported him saying. What he meant was he did not want parliament interfering with his decisions.
The newspaper reported, 'Dlamini said there needed to be a clarification on the separation of powers of the three arms so that none of them got in the way for the other, thus making the operation of government smooth in as far as that was concerned.'[view whole blog post ]
