Swazi King Directs Men To Marry More Wives Or Risk Jail Terms

The king, who has 15 wives and 25 children, and his father and predecessor having more than 70 wives and 150+ children revealed that eSwatini is facing a very serious problem as there are more women than men in his country - husband scarcity.

Marriage is seen as a symbol of pride in many African cultures, where increase in population has had significant impact on poverty levels and economic growth. This new directive is a step back in time.
