King Mswati III has announced Swaziland will now be known as The Kingdom of Eswatini
In what appears to be a double celebration of his nation’s 50th independence anniversary and his own 50th birthday, the king of Swaziland, King Mswati III, has renamed Swaziland eSwatini.
Historically, Swaziland got her independence from South Africa on September 6, 1968, and it maintains absolute monarchy, ably aided by a 1975 constitution.
King Mswati III was born about five months earlier on April 19, 1968.
