When the Whites colonialized Africa many kings and Chiefs that were ruling were overthrown. After the independence and end of Apartheid only a few Monarchy remained in Africa .In Southern Africa the biggest Monarchy remaining is of the Swaziland Kingdom. It is ruled by King Mswati the third.
In a monarchy a king is the law .His decesion is final and there are no political parties. Also there are no presidential election as the crown is passed from one father to son .
King Mswati is one of the most richest kings in Africa. He has an estimated networth of US$200 million .He owns a fleet of luxury cars , mansions and jewellery pieces.People noticed one of his watches that apparently costs R12 million see below .
Clearly King Mswati is very rich .For him to spend R12 million on a watch just like that .And its not him alone , all his children own these expensive watches and they wear expensive designer clothes .
While King Mswati as his family are living their best lives , the nation is in great poverty, there are no good health sytems.There is high unemployment rate and many of the citizens have fled to South Africa to seek better opportunities here .That R12 million could have been used to build a new hospital or school but instead he used to it to buy a watch and to buy designer clothes for his children .With leaders like this Africa will never truly develop because all they care about is enriching themselves and their families .
