Eswatini’s King Mswati III Appoints New Prime Minister

Eswatini’s King Mswati III has appointed Cleopas Dlamini as the southern African nation’s new Prime Minister, after weeks of protests in a push for democracy.

Dlamini, previously the chief executive of the Public Service Pension Fund, replaces Ambrose Mandvulo Dlamini who died in December 2020.

The announcement, streamed live online and on state radio on Friday, was made at an open public meeting known as Sibaya, usually only held once a year. 

Skirting around the sticky issues, Mswati said it was important that the Prime Minister be someone who is accessible and open to advise by the nation.

He asked the nation to fully support and stand behind the new PM.

The king also noted the importance of improving the local economy in light of a strain in the region.
