ladyy j,
U have more bull...s...t than these innocent girls. Leave them to those who know the value. Never proud of the likes of yr sisters with breasts pumped with silicon? Ask Swazis. When was this? They must now be on market among real men!

this is an exibition of the 15century primitive african humanity which has no place on the modern world. am very surprised, i now understand why hiv aids has been this countries daily bread.
the world should stop waisting time on nuclear countries and capture this nonsense king to the ICC. what!!!!! does this country have any idea about develoment at all?

I am very happy for a well cultured african children. It may be a Cultural shock, ancient way of live, not modern and so on. But the fact is that people should learn about their ROOT(S).
Am very Proud to be an African Scientist. Look at the cultural value not the innocent NUDES.

they are all in school,hellooo! its Culture, if this culture was an issue the swazi's would have taken action, your probablly thinking all these girls are uneducated, when really they are! so don't talk about something you have no idea about.
i know this beacuse i'm swazi, if i were smarter you i would have asked someone who is from swaziland and knows more about their own culture.

I hope they are not out there because they want to be picked out by the King as the next new wife?Pls they should complete their education first (@ least high school/Secondary).

DiQ,
This not child abuse. That is their culture and that is their tradition, you have to respect it.
I was their also on 2004. I took lots of photos but of poor quality coz I was a newbie in photography that time. This year the Reed Dance will be held on the 31st of this month (August) and I'm planning to go there hoping to get better pictures this time coz now i'm more experienced than before and have better photo gears.
Lets go and watch the Reed Dance ceremony. See you there people!

Diq, where is home for you????? This a beautiful traditional celebration. Are there any beauty pageants where you are? And why is the abuse to you? How many celebrations are just for the females of Swaziland?
Treasure Vilakati 18-Dec-2008 19:58
I am Swazi and DiQ this is NOT child abuse it is culture if you don't like it
Don’t look at it its simple it’s not only girls that go you should ask
Someone who has went to the reed dance most of the girls are not
There for the king they are there for culture they go when they want to
There is nothing wrong with these girls they are made by God so you cannot judge
their beauty they are unique all you know is that the king chooses a wife but you should learn a bit more about people's culture they have feelings obviously they would be upset if someone like you said "who would choose them to be a wife" please ask someone that is a Swazi you will know a bit more you don't have to have long hair to be pretty or have make up they are humans and they want to stay pure they chose to go
on another picture you said a girl was really pretty behind the police lady's hand and that girl IS Princess Sikhanyiso I have met her before she is really nice that is her Dad you are talking about like that and now your saying "this is child abuse" when YOU have been looking at the photos these are my questions

Why are you looking at the pictures when you don't like the culture?
Do you know about the Swazi Traditions and I mean all of them?
Do you know the purpose of them?
I want to say i find it quite funny because you’re the one who has been commenting on all the pictures with the miss Swaziland finalists and now you are saying this is child abuse one time you said a girl looked like she had HIV aids why can't you count
Other countries that have it as well that is insulting someone you cannot tell that someone has HIV you are not a medical doctor that is pure rubbish and ignorance

DiQ 21-Mar-2008 10:00
this is child abuse. gys are you sure the king wants any of the girls on this photo?? why waste their time
Julius 13-Dec-2007 12:53
