Ambrose Dlamini, chief executive of telecoms group MTN eSwatini, has been appointed by King of eSwatini as new prime minister of the southern African kingdom, according to Reuters.
Mswati is Africa’s last absolute monarch and has tight political control over the impoverished, land-locked nation formerly known as Swaziland, where political parties are banned.
Reuters said the Times of Swaziland reported that Mswati made the announcement to supporters on Saturday at his royal residence.
The new prime minister replaces Sibusiso Dlamini, who died last month.
