PEACE: Lee and Prince Hlangusempi at the signing of the declaration

The Kingdom of eSwatini is the first African country to sign a Memorandum of Understanding on the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War.

The signing ceremony took place at the ongoing African Leaders of Peace Summit in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Speaking on behalf of King Mswati who did not attend the summit, the Minister of Economic Planning and Development, His Royal Highness Prince Hlangusempi, urged all African Leaders to endorse the MOU saying it was about time the leaders took action on matters that affect their communities.

“This document is timely and we cannot ignore what has been happening with families losing their loved ones due to violence and wars,” he said.

Speaking at the same event, the Chairman of Heavenly Culture World Peace Restoration of Light (HWPL), Man Hee Lee emphasized the need for peace.

He said that there is a great opportunity for Africa but firstly there has to be peace. “We have to cease war and in order to achieve that all countries have to take part. Peace does not belong to one country but all,” he said.

Lee added that today’s world is in the most chaotic and dangerous state in the history and that no one is safe from the many threats.

He said that the Declaration presented has a clear and definite purpose, that is to cease all wars on earth. “The declaration is unique in its inclusion of provisions designed to prevent religious conflict, often times excluded from legal instruments.”

He added that the work of restoring the world is the hope of all creation, both on heaven and earth. “All our efforts will not go in vain but will go down in history forever. Let’s work together and accomplish our common purpose – peace and cessation of war.”

  1. African leaders are known for signing documents and not adhering to them how many people must be killed or be refugees before something is done along in June/July 700 people crossed the Mediterranean trying to get into europe they cannot even speak openly about corruption and many other social ills??

  2. In this country that has signed the document the people live in abject poverty while the so called Kings, Princes who actually in a way Chiefs live lavish luxurious lifestyles and not a comment from SADC who run the organisation the latest a ship carrying migrants from Italy refused by italy asking the UK to take them and they finally end up in Malta the Million Dollar question as the saying goes what are the African Leaders doing about it – absoultely nothing including AU and SADC they are getting hefty salaries at the expense of these people shunted from pillar to post like animals. The refugees are confined to a camp like animals living in a pen which which should be rejected by such organisations ????

  3. Why does not SADC and AU create a fund to assist refugees ???? instead of the ones that work at these organisation living it up up ????

  4. When the world watched how ECOWAS sorted the Gambia fiasco it was the right way to do it the wasy SADC does things they should learn from ECOWAS they will bring shame on SADC!

  5. The youth should have challenged SADC on the way they invite DICTATORS, and those with poor human rights records to etc. to summits and that SADC should just sit back and nilly willy accept COUPS the one is zimbabwe is a good example they are too laid back those who for SADC after all they did entertain the Dictator of this country and his poor human rights record- how do they expec the region to move forward when they are doing this?
