- Mswati III, current king of Swaziland, gets for himself a brand new wife
- The 19-year-old daughter of Swaziland’s cabinet minister will be the king’s 14th wife
- The king is expected to choose a new wife from a bevy of beautiful maidens every year
As was expected, Swaziland’s King Mswati III, who is also the head of Swazi Royal Family, has gotten himself a fresh 19-year-old bride as his 14th wife.
The king is traditionally required to choose from a bevy of beautiful maidens every year in a common Reed Dance ceremony called Umhlanga.
During this year’s Umhlanga , the king spotted one Siphelele Mashwama who, according to Buzz SA, is a daughter of Swaziland’s cabinet minister Jabulile Mashwama.
The youthful and beautiful Mashwama is reportedly a fresh graduate of Waterford Kamhlaba World University College in Swaziland.
The newly married couple are currently spending some good time (call it honeymoon) in the United States where the king has gone to attend the United Nations general assembly.
Long live the king!
