Cosatu has criticised government's decision to give Swaziland a bailout loan of two-and-a-half-billion-Rands.

Cosatu spokesperson Patrick Craven says the money should not be given to King Mswati, who will only spend it on maintaining his luxurious lifestyle, while Swazi citizens live in poor conditions.

Craven says they will continue to be vocal about the loan until the people have won their democratic rights.
