2014 Oslo Freedom Forum
October 22, 2014
After being invited to speak at the Oslo Freedom Forum, Swazi human rights lawyer Thulani Maseko was jailed by the absolute monarchy of his country for speaking out against injustice. Thulani remains in jail but his wife, Tanele Maseko, was able to travel to Norway to read a letter from her husband, in which he shares his vision for a free, democratic, and just Swaziland. The Masekos appeal to the Oslo Freedom Forum community to share the story of their country’s plight in the hopes that one day, the will of the Swazi people will form the basis of the government’s authority.
