The Kingdom of Swaziland was decolonized and became independent in 1968, with King Sobhuza II as leader. The Dlamini dynasty still rule Swaziland today. The royal family is comprised of the king, the queen mother, the king's wives, the king's children, the king's siblings and half-siblings and their families.

Maboya Fakudze, a noted authority on the history of Swaziland, and Mahlaba, a son of Sobhuza and a well-known imbongi, also participated in this interview process.]
