His Majesty King Mswati III in India.
His Majesty King Mswati III is accompanied by only ONE Inkhosikati – LaFogiyane – as it has always been the norm. Whenever the King travels, he is accompanied by only ONE Inkhosikati and this is known by every Swazi.
The Swazi Foreign Minister Mgwagwa Gamedze termed “blatant lies” and “totally fabricated” all those news reports which mentioned that His Majesty King Mswati III visited India with many numbers of Royals.
“There is absolutely nothing like that,” the Foreign Minister Mgwagwa Gamedze said, “The King is accompanied by one Inkhosikati – LaFogiyane – as it has always been the norm. Whenever the King travels, he is accompanied by only one Inkhosikati and this is known by every Swazi.”
The facts about the trip are that whilst in India, His Majesty and his delegation met with several financiers and potential investors who have shown great enthusiasm in coming to set up in Swaziland.
The Kingdom must be protected from such reports which portrayed a negative image Kingdom such activities had robbed Swaziland of good opportunities. Such reports are circulated by those people who have no knowledge of Swazi culture portraying it in bad light on some foreign forums. Swaziland belongs to Swazis and Swazis are proud of their Monarchs.
