HAVE I GOT SWAZI NEWS FOR YOU

Here’s a bit of light entertainment for you. In July 2010 Swaziland’s Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister Ndumiso Mamba was found hiding under the bed of Inkosikati LaDube, King Mswati III’s 12th wife.


The news of the adulterous affair (note to lawyer: are we still calling it an ‘alleged’ affair?) went round the world, but the media in Swaziland were prohibited from reporting about it.


The manner in which Mamba was captured has caused hilarity around the world as evidenced by this clip from the popular BBC Television comedy news quiz show, Have I Got A Bit More News For You.


By coincidence, the item also demonstrates the freedom the British have to criticise their own Royal Family.
