Hey kamohelo,
A hundred thousand Dollars is not a lot of money to offer to change a country.
A few things to consider:
No matter how badly things are going, very few people will abide outsiders disparaging their country.
The people that are on the internet are defending or condemning Swaziland are probably better off than a good deal of their respective populations, so their view may be somewhat skewed.
Just my two cents

. I think people should come and virsit our country before they jurge us, Erithia is very poor. I dont know what you are talking about I have alot of Erithian friends they agree that their country is very poor and some of them when they are going back to home for visit they carry food and sugar when i go to swaziland I dont carry food because we have food MR get life ok.

As a Swazi I take exception to your comment. Firstly, life expectancy in Swaziland is low due to HIVAIds. This has not always been the case. Secondly, in purely economic terms Eritrea is a poor country(I would imagine that the protracted war with Ethiopia has a lot to do with this). Swaziland is also a poor country although not to the same extent as Eritrea. Thirdly, as for your insulting our King,I can only attribute this to gross ignorance on your part. Finally, I would urge you to find someone who has actually been to Swaziland to give you a more accurate picture of our Kingdom. Better still: why not visit us and fidn out for yourself whether the perceptions that you have are actually the reality which we live. <quoted text>

THE LEGACY OF EGYPT ENSLAVENNT

In the North-East of South Africa,
South-West of Mozambique
Where a landlocked is,
It is locked for the victimization of its own people
Without a disturbance from other forces.

Those who feel itís a country named it Swaziland
Itís a Swazi farm, an Island of autocracy
People should not choose their capable leaders,
To voice against the prevailing hegemony,
To unite for capable leadership.

Who can own the land beside him?
Who can own luxuries above his?
Either rides an airplane without his concern.
Who can have home without his concern?
Who can receive higher wages in his soil; however, his chicks defend him because of the thigh they get from his grasshopper.

They talked about the 1968 freedom
Itís a pseudo-freedom.
Look at the men, weman, sons and daughters who work in his farm with bare feet in a blazing sun just for bread without butter.
Where the schooling to these kids is if there is true freedom,
His are graduating overseas, no one to blame that because they are prince and princesses by the energy of the nation.

Yes there is a freedom,
But,
Of poverty and unemployment.
See how free HIV/AIDS it is, illiteracy and oppression.
See slave practice, selfishness, corruption, and the sodomsing of the hungry people.

You Pharaoh III think a rein as your forefathersí heritance
Louis XVI thought so in France, it did happen in Russia, in Cuba, here in South Africa it was. Let them tell you if thereís a permanent situation in life.
Let them tell you about the history of the true freedom they are enjoying now.
The freedom of the people,
By the people,
For the people,
With the people to the people.
The freedom, unguarded of sex, race, religionÖ.in the land of the people.

No matter how many freedom fighters are detained, exiled, arrested or killed but
One day the Swazis will be free, the sun will glitter, the day will joy
All the illness, starvation, slavery, illiteracy,
as many sufferings are, will be laughter.
We donít know where your way will be about if youíll luckily survive
Swaziland is our best mother land, we love it,
Let it be free!

Are you a Swazi? THEN DON'T MAKE SUCH A STATEMENT. WHERE YOU ARE IN EDMONTON IS NOT THE BEST EITHER. THE PEOPLE ARE HAPPY THEY DON'T HAVE SO MUCH BILL AS YOU ARE.

The Swazis are very lucky to go and play in Eritrea.
The Eritreans have better record in economic development than the Swazis, plus the Swazis are the joke of Africa with a king who marries and rapes young teen-agers whenever he gets hard between his two legs.
Why is Swaziland the poorest nation in Africa with abysimal record, just ask the king.

In Swazilands defence it must be noted that in 60 years of independance they have never once engaged in any armed confrontation on the international stage. Whilst if you look at Eritreas 20 years of independance (not only did it spend 30-40 years with a bloody war of independance from Ethiopia) but it also ingaged in another war killing around 70,000 people just for a few small villages with populations all under 1000 at the time. You also attacked and killed Yemenease soldiers when you invaded those islands. You have been accused of supporting Somali Islamists to fight against Ethiopia and you are currently having to put up with an insurgency because of your human rights abuses.
You also have an invaluale port to the biggest shipping lane in the world dose Eritrea giving you acess to the most ideal trade route any country could want. Swaziland on the other hand has to go through Mozambiqe and mostly South Africa reducing their market and making it hard to get to other markets such as the EU and America.
It has a smaller population and there is little it can do right now to stop the Aids pandemic. You have Somalia to get rid of the Aids and a few other Islamic countries surounding you. They are obviously a strict islamic nation, that is a big reason why you dont get much of it.

I am a black American who has had the opportunity to travel all over the world. This past spring I was able to visit Swaziland (during an extended stay in South Africa)for the first time. I could easily be a goodwill ambassador for Swaziland. Since returning to the United States, I have continuously sung the praises of Swaziland as if I were a citizen. I LOVE that country - its landscape, its people (the ones that I met are very sensible, engaging and friendly), its art and its cleanliness among other things. I don't know how poor the people are(I haven't studied their economics or sociology status) but I can say the "look" of its people is not that of a typical poor nation wherein the people look downtrodden, unhappy and angry. I think more people should try to educate themselves about a nation prior to passing judgement. Memories of that country will forever be etched on my brain.

A country with a life expectancy of 32 calls Eritrea poor? What a joke?
What do these ignorants know about Eritrea?
With a king who maries whenever he gets horny?
Men these people are a disgrace.
A country is never poor but it is a case of bad management of resources by leaders

[swaziland have been harvested by Blood thirsty Britain by introducing or imposing christianity to swazis. Lesotho, malawi and Botswana to mention a few were wrecked economicaly by Britain, so please dont come with your western stories about king Mswati. Your christianity is slowly dying as people realise its a profit making cult based on astrology without you and your ancestors knowing.Any man marry a woman who gets him horny if you didnt know or you are a gay.
