‘KING GETS 32 CARS FOR HIS BIRTHDAY’



The People’s United Democratic Movement (PUDEMO), a banned political party in Swaziland, says 32 BMW cars have been delivered to King Mswati III ahead of his 45th birthday celebrations tomorrow (19 April 2013).

PUDEMO, in a statement on its Facebook page, said the ‘state-of-the-art’ cars were taken through the Oshoek border between Swaziland and South Africa yesterday and later delivered at Nkoyoyo Royal Palace.

The statement has not been confirmed by spokespeople for the king, who rules Swaziland as sub-Saharan Africa’s last absolute monarch.

At his last birthday the king was embroiled in a row when he took delivery of a private jet plane, worth an estimated US$46 million.

The king claimed that the McDonnell Douglas DC-9 twin-engine jet was a gift from an admirer, but declined to say who it was. This led to speculation that the jet had been purchased out of public funds.
