Even though the video and pictures do not really sum up to 19, the Swaziland’s Ministry of ICT has been said to have confirmed that the King actually bought the brand-new Rolls-Royce cars for real. Since the King officially has up to 15 wives; it is safe to accept the account of the journalist who claims that the vehicles were more than 15 in number altogether.
