Being an absolute monarch, King Mswati III does have the power to change the name of his country, as what he says is law.

He announced the name change in the stadium while the country celebrated 50 years since they gained independence and his 50th birthday.

The name translates to “land of the Swazis,” and the king has reportedly been using it to refer to the country for a while now, and even at the 2017 UN General Assembly.
