King Mswati denies ordering men to marry more wives

The leader of the Kingdom of Eswatini King Mswati III has denied reports that went viral yesterday on the internet alleging he ordered the men of Eswatini to marry more than one wife or face jail term.

In a statement issued by the Government’s Spokesperson, Percy Simelane, it reads, "The current dispatch titled marry more wives or face jail quoting the King are not only an insult to the monarchy but a disgrace to journalism.

"His majesty has not made any pronouncement to that effect and it has  never been an issue raised by Emaswatini."

Simelane says they are now demanding the newspaper that broke the story to provide the statement from the King.
