Swaziland's three national security chiefs are to join a growing number of ruling elite in the undemocratic kingdom to receive bullet-proof cars.
Umbutfo Swaziland Defence Force (USDF) Commander Lieutenant Sobantu Dlamini, Royal Swaziland Police (RSP) Commissioner Isaac Magagula and His Majesty's Correctional Services (HMCS) Commissioner Isaiah Mzuthini Ntshangase are each to receive BMW 2013 X5 cars at a total cost of E4 million.
They join about 20 members of the Swazi Royal family, headed by King Mswati III, who already have top-of-the-range Mercedes S600 Pullman Guard cars that can withstand an armoured missile assault.
Local media in Swaziland have been reporting that the latest three cars are ready to be delivered from Germany next month (March 2013).[view whole blog post ]
