It is clear that King Mswati is not only content with mismanaging Swaziland's economy and denying its citizens their democratic rights, he now wants to claim parts of South Africa as his own.
He should study his history. In 1982 the apartheid government persuaded his government to oppose the ANC's underground structures, promising that Swaziland would receive the land it now lays historical claim to.
However, the Berlin Conference's decision in 1885 to consider the borders as they stood then was later ratified later by the Organisation of African Unity.
African leaders, by doing this, had the wisdom to avoid unnecessary future border conflicts, which would have ravaged the continent because of the legacy of colonialism.
Perhaps, instead of taking the matter to some court in The Hague, the king should consider taking the matter to the African Union, where his peers will educate him about African history.
They would also tell him why, despite the wars Africa has had, these wars would be nothing compared with reviewing the legitimacy of these boundaries.
He must realise that the people who live in South Africa on the land he is disputing would most probably revolt against his dictatorship, because despite the problems we might have, we are now a democracy and therefore better off.
