Swaziland: The Gulf War "live" from a broom closet.

In April 2003, the Kingdom of Swaziland populated with 1,128,814 inhabitants (2008) followed the Gulf War live on national radio, "Swaziland Broadcast and Information Service (SBIS)" in the capital, Mbabane.
The live reports "from Baghdad" that the country stopped passionate: the special envoy told local radio in real time the progress of operations had actually never left Mbabane.
His "stories" were made in the building of the National Assembly.
However, local residents were cut off for several days they were passionate about the news.
Moses Matsebula, the presenter of the show that made the live link to Phesheya Dube, "special envoy" to Iraq even worried about the safety of the latter:
"My dear compatriots, it looks like the cellar in which our correspondent in Baghdad was bombed. It is currently unreachable and I ask you to pray that we do not lose such a good reporter."

         The story does not say exactly how the pot to the roses was discovered, although Phesheya Dube who gleaned his information in the articles of the foreign press and news agency has taken all precautions to avoid being unmasked: it issued from a broom closet located in the building of the National Assembly!

         "Why do they lie to the nation by saying that the journalist is in Iraq while he is here in Swaziland and it transmits from a broom closet?" asked MP Jojo Dlamini Minister of Information during a parliamentary session.
Since the discovery of the fraud, Moses Matsebula refused to answer questions from his colleagues who wondered whether he was aware of the case below.
The Minister of Information, Mntomzima Dlamini promised an investigation that has not worked since he was appointed Minister of Education.
         The fact is that Dube, through his imagination, the intonation of his voice and his sense of narrative dream local people, compensating for the weakness in its own way of local resources ...
Phesheya was destined to be sent very special role, since Swaziland's first name means "one who is abroad."

         The Kingdom of Swaziland is Africa's last absolute monarchy under King Mswati III, crowned King 25 April 1982. He succeeded his father, King Sobhuza II (1899-1982)
