A Swaziland newspaper says there are growing calls for the landlocked kingdom to claim large parts of South Africa – including Pretoria – for the Swazi people. The Swazi Observer said 'some Swazis' believed now was the right time to reclaim land 'lost' to South Africa during the colonial era. It noted the EFF had 'successfully moved a motion of land expropriation without compensation, which has since sparked wide spread debate over Swaziland's pursuit of reclaiming its lost land from South Africa’. A report on the allAfrica site notes that Swaziland has already formed a Border Determination Special Committee to address land disputes with South Africa.
