Eswatini Celebrates 55th Independence Anniversary with Message of Peace and Diplomacy

Eswatini, Africa’s last absolute monarchy, marked its 55th independence anniversary with a grand celebration attended by King Mswati III and various dignitaries. The festivities took place at the Somhlolo National Stadium in Lobamba, where cheering crowds gathered to commemorate the occasion.

Addressing his people, King Mswati III used the platform to extend a message of unity and peace to the African continent. He acknowledged the power struggles and conflicts that have affected parts of Africa, particularly in the northern region, and stressed the importance of preserving peace. The monarch emphasized that such conflicts hinder progress, including initiatives like the African Free Trade Agreement, and called for prioritizing peace on the continent.

One notable guest at the event was Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, who embarked on a four-day visit to Eswatini. President Tsai highlighted the significance of the occasion and the enduring partnership between Eswatini and Taiwan, which has spanned more than five decades and has been instrumental in fostering progress and development.

During the visit, Eswatini and Taiwan signed agreements, further solidifying their diplomatic ties. It’s worth noting that Eswatini is Taiwan’s last declared ally in Africa, as most African countries have established diplomatic relations with China, which considers Taiwan as part of its territory.

The celebrations in Eswatini not only marked a historic milestone in the nation’s history but also underscored the importance of diplomacy, cooperation, and peace in the broader African context.
