Professor Jonathan Moyo has urged South Africa's Economic Freedom Fighters to reconsider its stance on ousting Eswatini's dictator King Mswati III saying the revolution might be hijacked by Western elements.

Moyo sent the advice via Twitter after EFF organised peaceful protests along the country's borders in the KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga provinces with the neighbouring Eswatini on Tuesday.

Tuesday's protests, the EFF said, were part of renewed efforts to raise awareness about ongoing repression against pro-democracy protests in Eswatini.

"The EFF stood up in solidarity with the people of eSwatini today. SA government must isolate and close down the diplomatic offices of the king Mswati III in SA as form of protest and demonstration against his order to brutalise and maim the struggling people of eSwatini." The Party said on Tuesday.

Responding to EFF, Moyo said, "Dear @EFFSouthAfrica, On this one Cdes you might have to reconsider your stance or approach because there's a real risk and possibility that you will find yourselves in bed with Uncle Sam and his well known snakes in SA, whose agenda in Eswatini is radically different from yours!"

King Mswati III, who came to power at the age of 18 in 1986, has ruled Eswatini, formerly Swaziland, for 36 years.
