    Default PICS: People freely cross Swaziland border into SA

    Durban - About 500 people are allowed to “stroll” in and out of the country daily in front of members of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) at the border between South Africa and Swaziland without any checks.

    That is the allegation made by the DA leaders following a visit to the border this week.

    DA's Deputy Shadow Minister of Police, Dianne Kohler Barnard MP and DA Shadow Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Annette Steyn and Zululand East Constituency Head Hlanganani Gumbi visited the area on Monday..

    That's been the case for as long as there's been a Swaziland. Nothing new. It's part of SA, no matter what the politicians say. Same with Basutoland/Lesotho.
