King Mswati III's Swaziland government is in search of a hangman so prisoners presently on death row may be executed.
The Swazi Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Chief Mgwagwa Gamedze said a job vacancy advert would be placed as soon as possible.
Gamedze told the Weekend Observer, a newspaper in effect owned by King Mswati, an advert had been placed last year but no suitable applicants had put their name forward.
The Observer reported that taxpayers, who they did not name, had complained about the cost of keeping death-row inmates in prison.[view whole blog post ]
