Here’s a report on how King Mswati III of Swaziland ‘kidnaps’ teenage girls to make them become his wives.

In one cases a girl is literally bundled into a car while going home from school and driven away.

I don’t know much about the report, except that it appears to have been made in about 2003 by an English journalist. I don’t recognise him, but he must have some clout, because he manages to get a face-to-face interview with the king.

If anyone knows anything more about the clip, I’d like to know.

I found it on a blogsite called Dear Kitty, Some blog
