King Mswati (III), King of Swaziland, has ordered all men in his country to marry 2 or more wives or be imprisoned.
This declaration has become necessary due to the shortage of men in Swaziland and will take effect from June me 2019.
King Mswati (III) believes that men marrying more women will help a lot of single women to get husbands since the number of women in the country outnumbers men.
King Mswati III himself has 15 wives and 25 children and has considered this as a national issue. And in a bid to solve this issue, all men in Swaziland will have to marry 2 or more wives so that every woman in the country will get a husband.
In a press statement, the government of Swaziland is willing to cover all the cost for the marriage ceremonies and buy houses for them as well; Hence no one has any financial excuse for not obeying the King’s orders.
“Here’s the deal, marry at least five wives and you’re assured that the government will pay for the marriage ceremonies and buy houses for them” a palace source stated.
