Thousands of bare-breasted young Swazi women paraded in front of King Mswati III recently to celebrate chastity and unity, dismissing criticism of the lavish ceremony in one of Africa’s poorest countries.
King Mswati III, already has at least a dozen wives and a personal fortune estimated at $200m.
In the past, he has used the ceremony to choose a new wife, and some of the girls on parade still hoped to catch the king’s eye.
Anything for the good life?
