Only Two Female Elected MPs in The Next Parliament (Full List of Winners)

By on September 22, 2018

It would seem like “Vote For Woman” campaign was a big flop if the election results are anything to go by. Only two female candidates were elected to be a member of parliament in the next parliament. Make Thandi Nxumalo walked away victorious in Manzini South Constituency amassing 2,315 voted and was followed by former Minister of Public Service Owen Nxumalo with 2,004 votes. Lady Howard another female candidate emerged victorious in Mafutseni Constituency amassing 2366, defeating four males and one female.
The yesterday’s elections were full of drama and corruption as described by the Swazi News, a sister publication to the Times of Swaziland. Apart from the elections starting at a snail pace in terms to turnout, drama was an order of the day in some of the polling stations which resulted in security being enforced.
Some of the drams that took place were as results of agents that were campaigning during the elections. A move that moved social media was that of an ex minister that was caught red handed handing E100 to voters which are something that is illegal. An incident similar to this one occurred in Simunye as well. According to Swazi Observer, Simunye voters were showered with E20 each by a man that was alleged to be an agent for one of the contestants.
Leading in violence was the Sigwe constituency where shot were fired in attempt to disperse youth protester of the constituency who were demanding Lulakeni the Inkhundla Centre to be used as a counting Centre instead of the Lulakeni Primary. The violence in this constituency resulted in to several people being injured and one had to be rushed to hospital due to profusely bleeding. Violence in Sandleni constituency also erupted as a number of people blocked the roads with stones and trees, the roads that were going to be used to transports votes to a counting Centre. The incident was resolved by the quick intervention of police who as usual used violent to calm the situation. The same intervention of the police and use of violence saved the day in Manzini North constituency where stones were exchanged between Jan Sithole and Marcford Sibandze’s voters. This erupted shortly after Macford Sibandze was revealed as the winner in that constituency.
Situation was tense in Siphofaneni where popular Gospel Star Mduduzi Simelane was facing 2 decade serving Member of Parliament Gundwane Gamedze. The polling station was stained with vote rigging which then resulted late issuing of the results. Simelane walked away victorius under the constituency amassing 4,480 votes while Gamedze was sitting pretty at 3,332 votes. Gawuzela’s win broke social media as Emaswati all over the country expressed their excitement towards the Siphofaneni results.
