The sixth wife of Swaziland's King Mswati III has bought a house in South Africa and fled to the neighbouring country after leaving the monarch a few months ago, a close family source said Friday.
Angela Dlamini, known as LaGija, sought refuge with South African family members in the upmarket Sun City tourist resort north of the capital Pretoria.
“She will be coming to Johannesburg to see the new house that she bought. This means she has officially left the royal family. She is too emotionally wrecked and mentally fatigued after years of abuse from the royal family members,” a source close to the queen told AFP.
LaGija fled the royal palace in May this year claiming years of physical and emotional abuse by her husband, but remained with family inside the mountain kingdom.
“For her safety it was felt that she must go to South Africa because we don't trust what they are planning to do to her here,” the source said.
