More bizarre news from Swaziland, this time courtesy of the BBC.

King Mswati III recently postponed the beginning of the school term by a week because he wanted the schoolboys to weed the royal fields. I kid you not. 30 000 children were affected by the order, but not the King's own children who are in private school.

The world seems to ignore the antics of Mswati III, perhaps because Swaziland is of so little importance, but you can rest assured that we at Southern Cross will be keeping an eye on his activities.
