STATEMENT ON THE MURDER OF HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER THULANI MASEKO
It is with utter shock and distress that DefendDefenders and AfricanDefenders have learned of the assassination of prominent African human rights defender and advocate, Thulani Maseko, who was shot dead at his home in Luhleko, Mbabane, on 21 January 2023. DefendDefenders and AfricanDefenders believe that this heinous crime was planned and that Mr. Maseko was targeted because of his persistent advocacy for accountability and greater civic space for political and civil society organisations in Eswatini.
