God got it spot on when He told King Mswati III in a vision last Friday (30 August 2013) that a better name for the political system in Swaziland was a ‘Monarchical Democracy.’
The king said he received the message during a thunderstorm and immediately decided to stop calling the political structure in his kingdom ‘Tinkhundla’ and to revert to the new title.
If readers take a moment to look at a dictionary they will find that God’s Words aptly describe what prodemocracy activists have been saying for years: the king rules Swaziland as an absolute monarch.
Here’s the definition of ‘monarch’: ‘One who reigns over a state or territory, usually for life and by hereditary right, especially a sole and absolute ruler.’
And, this is ‘Monarchical’: ‘Ruled by or having the supreme power resting with a monarch; “monarchical government”’.
So there you have it. ‘Monarchical Democracy’ is exactly what Swaziland has. All power rests with the king; political parties are banned from taking part in elections; dissenting voices are crushed.
Readers will note that God did not say He agreed with King Mswati ruling Swaziland as an absolute monarch, He merely said that is what the king does.
The question now is: why did God choose this time, only a couple of weeks before the national election in Swaziland, to point this out?
