Government Statement: Government assures the Nation that His Majesty King Mswati III is in the country & continues to lead in working with Government to advance the Kingdom’s goals.

Officials deny King of Eswatini -- Africa's lone absolute monarch -- has fled - CNN
Quote:
Officials in Eswatini, Africa's lone absolute monarchy, have denied the King has fled following a series of pro-democracy protests in the tiny southern African country. King Mswati III has ruled the country for 35 years.

This is despite South Africa's public broadcaster, SABC, reporting Monday that Mswati, 53, fled the Southern African country as demonstrations took a violent turn, with protesters clashing with security forces. Opposition figures continued to insist on Tuesday that he had left, without providing proof.
Acting Prime Minister Themba Masuku said in a statement Tuesday: "His Majesty the King is still in the country and continues to lead in working with Government to advance the Kingdom's goals."

Thank you very much for sharing this important news.

An article by Andile Nsibande in the Swazi Obsever which covers the same protests and weekend violence with a few added details:

http://new.observer.org.sz/details.php?id=16340

Quote:
[...]

The protests that broke out across the country seemingly fuelled an ongoing conversation about police brutality and political reforms in the country. Previous protest marches had been calm and the protesters spoke of their frustration over being led by an unelected prime minister among a litany of many grievances.

The issue of the elected PM had been foremost, with other grievances becoming only ancillary. [...]

A quick solution seemed unlikely when the protesters vowed to continue with their demands despite the deployment of riot police. It all started when government took the decision to ban the delivery of petitions at constituency centres. Authorities argued that the protests were in violation of the Public Order Act and COVID-19 regulations.

Elsewhere in places like Siphofaneni, the protests took a nasty turn when two delivery trucks belonging to retail chain outlet Shoprite were attacked. One was set ablaze, while another was looted by agitated demonstrators.

The protestors further torched another truck that was transporting an excavator, which also caught fire. The loss incurred by affected companies is estimated to millions of Emalangeni.

Could you or anyone who has been following the news out of eSwatini explain what you believe the king's role to be (if any)?

King Mswati and Queen Mother Ntombi the Indlovukazi attended the Ceremony of Umhlanga or Reed Dance, which was created in the 1940s by King Sobhuza II for the King to choose a new wife, which he does not do every year. This ceremony is held mainly for ladies celebrating their virginity, in which many princesses also attended at the Ludzidzini Royal Village in Lobamba​, Eswatini.
