    Exactly what will the Swazi government do about it? Probably NOTHING!

  2. He should of had more sence going to Russia. We all know gay people and people of colour are not welcome in Russia.

    1. Why should he “of” known that? Do you think such information is readily available in Swaziland – especially if, as is probably the case, some sort of scholarship was involved?

  3. So glad that we have cancelled our trip to the abomination that is Russia. As to what the Swazi government would do, what would the British government do if it was one of their citizens? Like Peter Tatchell or Stephen Fry? Nothing!

    How many Genocide victims and attacks does it take to get a diplomatic response?

  5. I suppose if we’re waiting for any form of official apology from Russia or even the “technical university” in question, we’ll be waiting a long, long time …

  6. Funny that Russia is off the menu but plenty of gay people are happy to cruise the carribbean. Hypocrites

  7. I hope the Swazi Government demands that the Russians pay back all the money the man’s family had spent to send him to go to University. Foreign schooling does not come cheap.
