A young woman is seeking asylum in Britain after she spurned the advances of the polyamorous King Mswati III of Swaziland and refused to join his harem of 13 wives. Tintswalo Ngobeni, 22, fled to England from the southern African nation as a teenager after she caught the attention of the millionaire monarch, a notoriously oppressive ruler known for his lavish lifestyle. As part of Swazi custom, King Mswati III, 45, is permitted to choose a new bride every year.
What fascinates me is why someone from Swaziland would seek refuge in a country thousands of miles away. Are there NO other welcoming countries in between, or perhaps might it be that the UK is such a soft touch that it acts as a magnet?
