It seems every Swazi national is heeding the royal command that the country will no longer be Swaziland, but eSwatini.

The Central Bank of eSwatini and the eSwatini National Arts and Culture Council were among the first organisations to heed the call, following the name change in April.

“It is advised that the pronouncement by His Majesty King Mswati III on the occasion of the 50-50 national celebration has led to an executive decision to change the name of the university to be in line with the pronouncement made by the king.
