King Mswati Of Swaziland Orders Men In His Country To Marry More Than Two Wives Or Face Jail 3

King Mswati III of Swaziland has declared in Mbabane Swaziland that men will be required to marry at least two or more wives or be jailed if they fail to do so starting in June 2019.

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

Men from Swaziland are therefore required and expected to take more wives so that every woman gets a husband.

The country which is known to be full of virgins, is also said to have more women than men.

In a statement, king Mswati called for all men in the country to marry at least five wives and the government assured the men that it would pay for the marriage ceremonies and buy houses for them.

King Mswati warned that any man or woman who opposes the decision “will face a life sentence.”
