Eswatini Denies Reports of Shortage of Men in the Kingdom

The kingdom of Eswatini has been forced to deny reports it was offering citizenship to men from other southern African countries because of a shortage at home.

A faked viral letter, pretending to be from King Mswati III, expressed concern over the “scarcity of men” in Eswatini.

The faked letter also claimed the king would help willing men from southern Africa to marry wives and get free houses in the kingdom.

“The public is notified that this circulating notice is fake,” the Eswatini government said in a short statement posted on X (formerly Twitter)

It is not clear who authored the fake letter which had excited plenty of social media users in the region.

Eswatini, Africa’s last absolute monarchy, has a population of about 1.2 million people.
