– He described the report as an insult to his personality and the country
– Mswati III reportedly had 15 wives and 25 children himself
King Mswati III of Swaziland has refuted reports that he warned men who failed to marry at least 5 wives by June 2019, that they would be sanctioned.
Mswati III said such a report is an insult to his personality and Swaziland as a country. This is contained in a report sighted by Legit.ng on Swaziland-based media Punch.com.
The report had claimed that the king was not happy with the growing number of unmarried women in the country.
He was, therefore, said to have made the order, warning that any man or woman who failed to obey would be thrown in jail.
However, Mswati III has released a statement to debunk the report. According to the statement, such an issue has never been raised by the king.
The statement also described the report as an assassination on the king’s character.
Speaking about marriages and weddings, Legit.ng had reported that the Kano state government revealed that it has finally concluded arrangements to conduct mass wedding for 1,500 prospective couples from across the 44 local government areas of the state.
