King Mswati III to mark 25th anniversary of ascending the throne in 2011

The official budget for the royal family is a closely guarded secret. But opponents criticise the monarch for spending lavishly on a fleet of top-line BMWs and palaces for his 13 wives.
Despite the meltdown, the king is planning lavish celebrations for the 25th anniversary of his reign this year. The government has not disclosed how much the party will cost, but the official price tag for the king's 40th birthday party in 2008 was more than 12 million dollars. - AFP

Prince Sicalo is safely back home

Lieutenant Prince Sicalo, the first-born son of the King Mswati III, is now safely home. The Prince who jetted out of trouble-riddled Libya on Friday, arrived in Swaziland on Saturday night.
Prince Sicalo has been in Libya for a number of years undergoing ‘specialist’ military training with the Gaddafi's regime.- Full article

Prince Sicalo is the eldest son of Queen LaMatsebula (the ritual wife). A Swazi king's first two wives (ritual wives) are chosen for him by the national councillors. According to Swazi customs the children of the ritual wives are 'the children of gods' and can not inherit the throne.

Anger over Mswati's plans for royal wedding - Source

Next week, Mswati will be among VIP spectators at Westminster Abbey for a slightly more austere version hosted by the British royal family.
But his invitation has angered his countrymen, who accuse the UK of "legitimising" their autocratic monarch who rules over one of the poorest countries in the world.

In strong statement, Catholic bishops call for democratic reform in Swaziland - Brandon Sun
Catholic bishops are urging reforms in Swaziland, calling sub-Saharan Africa's last absolute monarchy a police state that is "tearing itself apart."
The statement issued Thursday after a Southern African Catholic Bishops' Conference visit to Swaziland said the king should lift a state of emergency that has been in place for nearly four decades, reinstate "the full range of human rights" and open talks on democratization.
Swaziland's prime minister has said his country will resist outside pressure.
Swaziland's King Mswati III lives lavishly in a country of 1 million beset by high levels of poverty, unemployment and AIDS. Mswati is accused of repressing human rights and harassing and jailing pro-democracy activists.

Recounting the events after the death of King Sobhuza II, Prince Mfanasibili said Labadzala had communicated to the Liqoqo that the next King would be Makhosetive and the Queen Mother would be the current Indlovukazi, Her Majesty Queen Ntombi. [...] - Source
