Dunya News: SWAZILAND (Web Desk) – A 22-year-old woman fled to Britain from the southern African nation of Swaziland and is seeking asylum after refusing to join the harem of 13 wives of Swazi king Mswati III.
Tintswalo Ngobeni fled to Britain after she caught the attention of the millionaire monarch, known for his lavish lifestyle, the Daily Mail reported.
As part of Swazi custom, the 45-year-old king is permitted to choose a new bride every year. He is father to 27 children.
The king s sixth wife escaped from the royal harem last year, citing years of “emotional and physical abuse” by her husband.
