One of the outstanding Math students and a king of Swaziland

by Sesil Atwood (2016-11-23)

Being a young prince, Mswati III attended Masundwini Primary School. Later went to Lozitha Palace School. He was also a part of the Swaziland Primary Certificate examination in 1982 at Phondo Royal Residence.

Then he received a merit and a First Class in English and Mathematics. When I prepared for my Math article on, I mentioned him as a student who learned Math strikingly fast. No wonder - he was selected a king only when he was 14! And in 1983 he was crowned and introduced as a monarch.

An amazing interest was developed to the royal guard. After some time he became the first young cadet and was accepted as a junior member of the military service.
