In fact according to Dopey Diana he's "experiencing a living hell, in the wilderness, competing with canines for food and water. His only possession is a blanket encrusted with his own feces". She adds that "he is neglected, abandoned, forgotten." And indeed he is, even though his "friendly, warm, caring and generous" family are whooping it up just a few yards away in the centre of the village. However, we must not judge them. That would be Cultural Imperialism.
But in truth, the rest of the Swazis don't seem to be living much better. In fact the UN has claimed that if things continue as they are it will in due course cease to exist as a country. "It's written on their faces. Prematurely ageing skin, weathered hands, bloated malnourished tummies and their creased furrowed brows. Average life expectancy is a stunningly low 35 and starvation is prominent in the rural communities." And "three in five children under age 16 are victims of sexual abuse". Naturally enough all of this is contrasted accusingly with the luxurious lifestyles enjoyed by "those back home". The article ends with an appeal for financial assistance from those same - overindulged - people 'back home'.
The writer claims to have read "everything I could lay my hands on about Swaziland". Which makes it a bit odd that she never mentions His Glorious Illustrious Omnipotent Majesty God-King Mswati III (Maswati The Turd), seen here (front) with his Council Of Scientific Advisers. Despite his country's travails he manages to live quite well. Actually he lives very well. Has his own huge private jet (pictured), a Royal Palace that stretches for more than half a mile, an uncounted fleet of luxury limousines (one of which is pictured), has no fewer than fourteen wives, the latest being a 19 year-old virgin (is there such a phenomenon in Africa?). All of said wives have their own palaces and mini-fleet of luxury limousines.
Clearly this was omitted because it didn't adhere to the Cathedral's Doctrine. Which is a pity because Swaziland is a case study in how even with - especially with - white Man's juju blacks destroy themselves and how their numbers return to naturally sustainable levels when they are simply left alone. They understand that the King takes what he wants - it's the African Way - and has been for thousands of years. Who are we to force our institutions on them? When we do that, or build schools and hospitals it means we think they are not good enough to do it themselves, paradoxically making liberal do-gooders like Diana Bunici de facto racists.
Isn't life funny?
As you can imagine I won't be contributing to the Swaziland Appeal. Even if King Maswati The Turd is taking a keen interest in its progress. Doubtless he's earmarked the proceeds to some worthwhile development projects for the betterment his people.
