One of the 15 wives of King Mswati III of Swaziland has apparently committed suicide.  It is being said that Queen LaMasango killed herself after being depressed over not being permitted to attend the funeral of her sister.

A sad story, for sure. But now it's the King of eSwatini, Swaziland is no more. One does sometimes wish that geographic names were not such moveable feasts, but I suppose it's fair enough to want the official name of the country to be in the language of the country, rather than a hybrid with English.
