King Mswati III prefers a ban on divorce in Swaziland

King Mswati III, Swaziland’s King and Head of the Swazi Royal Family, has echoed strong sentiments against divorce. The King revealed his anti-divorce beliefs during an Easter meeting with local pastors at his Engabezweni Royal Residence. There are concerns that if tabled, the King’s anti-divorce views could become law, and women would be greatly affected if divorce is banned.
