Mbabane Swaziland History

Swaziland is a small landlocked country in South Africa, known to few people. The Kingdom of Eswatsini is located in the southern part of Africa and borders the Republic of Mozambique.

Repeated statements influencing the political process, particularly on land issues by the king and his councils, were rejected.

At a special meeting of the Swaziland Presbytery on 30 January 1985, it was decided that the official name of the church would be changed to Swziland Reformed Church. This article documents the history of this church and concludes with a description of Goedgegun, who was a missionary in South Africa for 22 years (1922-1944) and leader of a group of four South African missionaries serving in four swastika regions. In addition to its membership in the World Council of Churches, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (WCC) and other international organisations, Switzerland had a SwZiland Conference, representing all churches in Svoziland, until all churches associated with it withdrew to form the Council for Swaziland Churches.

In 1894, Swaziland became part of the Transvaal colony, which was under British control after the Second Boer War and was a British protectorate until 1963. British, Dutch and Swaziland representatives led the government until the end of 1963, when it became part of the South African Republic. Independence was largely on paper, but on 6 September 1968 the country's first independent government was established, with its own parliament and government.

The British governor of the Transvaal, the administration of Swaziland, was assigned to his successor Sobhuza II. His rule is the longest ever recorded by a modern African ruler, and he ruled longer than a few ancient Egyptians.

Sobhuza II was the chief of Swazi, or King of Svyziland And he died in 1868. It was only when the new King M Bandenzi ascended the throne in 1875 that the church in Swat was allowed to reopen.

The Swaziland Constitution was the product of the former British rulers and was a constitutional monarchy until King Sobhuza II overturned the Constitution in 1973 and took absolute power through an emergency decree that remained in force until 2006. In 1973, King Ngwenyama abolished the British - constitutional - monarchies, and in 1976 Swaziland was ruled by a modified traditional monarchy, currently held by King Mswati III.

When Swaziland became independent in 1968, the name Goedgegun was changed to Nhlangano, which means "place of assembly," and then to Dlamini, which remained the family name of the royal family, while Nkosi means king. Ngwane is an alternative name for Swziland and Gollel is known as Lavumisa on the North African side, while it is known as Golela on the South African side.

Crown Prince Makhosh, who succeeded King Sobhosa II, who ruled Sviziland for 60 years and was the world's longest-reigning monarch when he died in 1982 at the age of 83, is the son of the late King Mbabane II and grandson of King Kgalema Motlanthe II.
