panafrica said:To add to what brother Ibrahim posted, this is a ceremony for King Mswati III. I was unaware that pictures are taken of this event, and would like to thank Ibrahim for sharing them. King Mswati has been widely criticized by the West for these ceromonies and his lifestyle in general (living in luxury while the rest of the nation is impoverished). In my opinion the same can be said of many rulers, including US presidents. I also have no problems with Mswati following the tradition of his people.
ibrahim said:But i however do have a problem with him trying to buy a "presidential jet" for the royal family while the nation is impoverished like Brother PanAfrica said.
SAMURAI36 said:Yes, that is truly sad. It kind of takes away from the sacredness of the ceremony.
