In Eswatini, tens of thousands of unmarried and childless Swazi girls and girls travel from the varied chiefdoms to the Ludzidzini Royal Village to take part in the eight-day event. They adorn traditional attires with elaborate beadwork.
They also wear bracelets and anklets. But in this beautiful attire, the women are half-naked. The maidens are careful to not break the reeds. Once a maiden breaks her reed, they take her into account to be sexually active. They say these girls to undergo a virginity test before they take part.
After they need all dropped their reeds, the maidens dance half-naked for the king. This tradition is alleged to possess started within the 40s and required young virgins to bop for the royal king for a chance to be chosen as a young bride, although there’s no confirmation of this information.
After ages, the tradition stopped and was reintroduced in 1991 by Goodwill Zwelithini the standard ruler. He used it as a measure to encourage high moral standards, abstinence from s*xual activity until marriage, and a measure to test the spread of HIV. This included Lazi Dlamini, the top of TV Yabantu, an internet video production company that aims to provide content that “protects, preserves and restores African values”.
Working with quite 200 cultural groupings across the country and in neighboring Eswatini, Dlamini organized a series of protests against Google to force them to rethink their position. Per a representative for the corporate, they lifted the restriction, because it isn’t Google’s policy to “restrict nudity in such instances where it’s culturally or traditionally appropriate.”
