Return to Swaziland 1 menu

We attended the one year anniversary celebration of Swaziland's independence. The celebration was held at a stadium which, I believe, must have been somewhere between Mbabane and Manzini. I had a seat in the bleachers near those that were set aside for the king's wives, of which there about a hundred. In the photo below the wives are filing into the assigned area.

And taking his place on the reviewing stand.


Various groups marched by the stand for review by the Ngenyama.
