Africa: Swaziland has the highest rate of HIV and AIDS in the world

A staggering one in four people have HIV/AIDS in Swaziland. According to the African Development Bank, youth unemployment in Swaziland is currently over 50%. Critics of King Mswati believe that he and his array of wives have contributed to the financial demise of this small landlocked kingdom. There are reports of shopping trips to Europe, a private jet from a private sponsor and plans for a second international airport for a country with just over one million people.
