The Kingdom of Swaziland is the only remaining absolute monarchy in Africa. King Mswati III continues to amass wealth while two-thirds of Swazi citizens live on less than US $1 a day and over a quarter of the population is living with HIV/AIDS (Amnesty International, 2013).

The situation of women is problematic in a country affected by HIV / AIDS, women often find themselves become heads of families. However, currently, they can neither achieve nor mortgage coming from a property owner! Several organizations from civil society try to act for the rights of women in Swaziland. (In Slate Afrique)
