Kingdom of Eswatini

The Kingdom of Eswatini is landlocked country in the southern part of Africa Surrounded by South Africa to the north, west and south and Mozambique to the east. The Swazi Kingdom rose to fame early in the 19th century, under the leadership of King Sobhuza I, who enlarged the land by conquering and absorbing numbers of non-Nguni people. The Kingdom of Eswatini became independent on 6 September 1968 from British Colonization and it went on to join the Commonwealth in 1973. The King cancelled the independence constitution, eliminating parliament and all political parties. A new system of governance, Tinkhundla, was introduced in 1978 and refurbished in 1993. When King Sobhuza died in 1982, there was a four-year delay before Prince Makhosetive acceded to the throne as King Mswati III in 1986 to date.
