‘Executions’ in Swaziland in the name of conservation
On 8th August 2008 a young Swazi man, Musa Gamedze, was hunted down and executed in broad daylight at his home, in full view of his children. According to eyewitness reports the man who fired the fatal shot was the General Manager of a local private game reserve, Mkhaya, accompanied by three police officers. Musa was shot in the back. He was unarmed and not posing a threat or danger to himself or others. After delivering the fatal shot and believing Musa to be dead, the killers fled the scene. In fact Musa was still alive but due to the serious nature of his injuries he died on the way to hospital.
