Did you know that King Mswati III of Swaziland picks a virgin for himself every year and now has more than 15 wives?
This is basically the Akuku Danger of Swaziland and he will continue marrying ‘virgins’ as long as he lives and as long as he is king. He must be a lucky man, huh!
Every year, a beauty contest is held to ‘select a wife for the King’. During this contest, thousands of girls are paraded naked before the king, naked, I mean in their birthday suits. One more thing, all those paraded should be virgins and how they measure the virginity, only those who do are the ones who know.
In 2017, the King married a 19-year old and the 15th wife and she emerged the winner in both beauty and virginity. Swaziland is among the poorest countries in the world but every Queen must have a state of the art palace for herself. Now, if Mswati was a President, then Swaziland would be having 15 plus ‘, first ladies’. Meanwhile, the search for the next virgin for the king is on this year. Who will be lucky? Watch this space.
