Swazi king catches wife no.12 'in bed with his justice minister friend'

By Samyuktha

London, August 4 (ANI): There's turmoil in the landlocked African kingdom of Swaziland, as King Mswati caught his twelfth wife in bed with his justice minister.

Mswati Nothando Dube was caught red-handed with the king's justice minister and friend Ndumiso Mamba.

Now, the 22-year-old wife has been put under house arrest and the minister accused of 'trespassing into another man's home', may be executed.

Dube, a mother of two who got engaged at 16 after taking part in a beauty pageant, could be exiled from the kingdom.

The pair was arrested at the Royal Villas hotel in a town near Mbabane, the country capital.

According to The Daily Mail, political commentators told the Daily Telegraph the alleged affair was ''common knowledge'.

Dube was married to the king six years ago and bore him a daughter within a year and a son soon afterwards.

British-educated King Mswati III, who is also known as 'ngweyama' or the lion, has ruled Swaziland since 1986. (ANI)
