    'War Correspondent' Has Cover Blown
    Tue Apr 1, 8:59 AM ET

    MBABANE (Reuters) - Listeners to Swaziland's state-run radio station thought it had its own correspondent in Baghdad covering the war -- until legislators spotted him in parliament at the weekend.

    "Why are they lying to the nation that the man is in Iraq when he is here in Swaziland, broadcasting out of a broom closet?" MP Jojo Dlamini demanded of Information Minister Mntomzima Dlamini in the House of Assembly on Monday.

    The minister said he would investigate the matter.

    Announcer Phesheya Dube gave "live reports" purportedly from Baghdad last week. Program host Moses Matsebula frequently expressed concerns about Dube's wellbeing and once advised him to "find a cave somewhere to be safe from missiles."

    The station declined to comment and referred questions to the ministry.
