120 BMWs and 19 Rolls-Royces delivered to Swazi king in days - Wandile Dludlu
Nineteen Rolls-Royces were delivered to eSwatini (Swaziland) last week for the exclusive use by King Mswati III, his mother and his 15 wives, reported TimesLIVE on Friday.
The Rolls-Royces were in addition to 120 BMWs delivered to Mswati on Thursday, claimed opposition leader Wandile Dludlu.
Last year for his 50th birthday, taxpayers gave Mswati a private jet, despite him already owning one.
Mswati collects some of the most expensive cars ever built.
Swaziland is a poor country with one of the shortest life expectancies (57 years) in the world.
According to the World Bank, about 40% of the Swazis live on less than $1.90 per day.
