King Mswati III Of Eswatini Swaziland Buys 19 Rolls Royce For His 15 Wives by TrendingGist: 9:11pm On Oct 31, 2019
King Mswati III of eSwatini Swaziland has purchased 19 Rolls Royce for his 15 wives and a customised Rolls Royce Cullinan SUV for himself. All worth £12 million.

While the country mulls over Finance Minister Tito Mboweni’s medium-term budget speech on the country’s economic spiral, eSwatini King Mswati III has left several on the Twitter streets gobsmacked after a video surfaced apparently showing how he had gifted his wives brand new Rolls-Royce vehicles.

Investigative journalist Mzilikazi wa Africa shared a picture and video of what he described as the brand new buys for the king’s wives.

While the monarch has over 13 wives, footage of the cars only shows a few of the similar-looking Rolls-Royces driving out of what seems like a compound, still with a few stickers indicative of their new nature.

A source, from eSwatini’s Ministry of Information Communications and Technology, confirmed to The Citizen that the king had indeed bought the vehicles. She said the vehicles arrived on Tuesday but was unsure on the exact number of the cars.

In 2009, Forbes named King Mswati among the top 15 wealthiest royals in the world despite the fact that he rules over one of the world’s poorest nations. Later they reported that “his personal net worth is at least US$50 million, based on the annual US$50 million salary that he is paid out of government coffers”.

The Citizen counted five cars in the footage but the lady speculated that she had heard that the number of cars to replace the cars of the wives stood at 13 or fifteen cars.

Swaziland is one of the poorest nation not just in Africa but also in the world and one chairman is purchased the very expensive Roll Royce Cullinan SUV for his wives.........and this definitely will be from the nation's treasury

African leaders are specialist in looting

Alright dude, you need to relax. First of, you need to understand that the man is an ABSOLUTE monarch- about one of only 5 or 6 absolute monarchs left in the world.
And as such, he has unfettered powers and every single thing in that country , including the "national treasury" that you are talking about belongs to him. As a matter of fact, that national treasury is pretty much the King's private banking account and he can so bloody do as he pleases with it.

Under an absolute monarchy, you can't question the king no matter what he does cos you never elected him in the first place. He rules by "divine rights" or at least, that's what they all cling to. And heck, no, there's no such thing as "checks and balances". That clumsy term only exists in "democrazies".

An absolute monarch is an autocrat. A totalitarian. He is guided by whims and caprices. Not laws. And even where those laws do exist, he is Solon. He is Hammurabi. He is Draco. He is the law-giver. The law is what he says it is and he can tweak it to suit his whims however and whenever he so chooses.
It's crazy man.

And sorry 'bout the epistle.

Alright, thanks for the epistle

Nevertheless, most African leaders are self-oriented. Only God can help us
