SANEF Hails the Release of Editor and Lawyer

SANEF applauds the release of Swaziland’s Nation magazine editor and human rights lawyer and columnist from prison

The South African National Editors' Forum (SANEF) has applauded the release of Swaziland’s Nation magazine editor, Bheki Makhubu, and human rights lawyer and columnist, Thulani Maseko, from prison.

The pair spent more than a year behind bars for articles they had written highlighting corruption by judicial officers.

They were convicted on trumped up charges of contempt of court after they exposed that a traffic inspector was disciplined for impounding the official vehicle of a judge after it was used for unauthorised trips.
