There is currently no cure for aids. I wonder if there will be any cure in the future - no matter how many tests. So for now, lets try (as hard as it is) safer sex practices. That means one man, one woman. No marriage,consequently no sex with under-age girls etc

True but then could you do this? I mean worrying about whether its safe to do it? But yeah I suppose for the rest. As for getting rid of the Kigdom, well the Kings only trying to keep up his status in a way, for Swaziland.

Who said there is no cure for Aids? What have you been learning?????????? do a research on urine therapy,you might just find something you were not looking for!! As for sex with limitations???? It may work in that part of the world. Not in Africa!! We get busy!

Yeesh!
The second highest response to the question was "Civil war should put democracy." Are you serious?!?! One of few countries in Africa that has escaped conflict should be thrown into the fire for the sake of conforming to a widely adopted political ideology?
OK. It is fair to say that the monarchy is something of an anachronism, but I do not accept that peace should be sacrificed for the sake of democracy.
Enough blood has been spilled in Africa!

One day the world will enjoy a healthy debate amongst educated and informed people not the rubbish we see so far in these postings. South Africa has the highest number of HIV infected people (quantitatively). The highest infected regions are KZN and Mpumalanga which both sorround Swaziland. Swaziland's infected is far less than 5% of South africa. It follows therefore that solving the problem in SA could impact positively on Swaziland. Also, in africa, more people die of malaria than AIDS currently. The second highest cause of death is probably car accidents and civil wars. Obesity in the US will continue to kill more people than AIDS will ever do in Swaziland. In short, we have bigger problems the world over than to appear informed through irresponsible comments.

Ok first of all the reason you dont lose so many people is because you have around one million people. Of coarse South Africa is going to have a higher rate of aids than you. And also you know those areas surounding you, well howcome we dont know that you gave it to them instead of vice-versa. Its pretty strange how they are right next to your border........

Well a few more votes. Not bad. I forgot to add a King should take 100% power and not listen to anyone but I was a little confused as to whether he can do that anyway

Im afraid nomvula that the most resent country to lose its monarchy (Nepal) did turn out a lot better off. But may be it will be different in Africa. A completely different part of the world and if you look at Ethiopia and how it lost its emperor, after that the country seemed to collapse and fall into decline. If it wasnt for soviot help they would probebly be a failed state
