The City of Manzini, otherwise known as the hub of Swaziland, is the commercial mecca of the Kingdom of Swaziland. In fact, it is where the first economic and commercial activities of the Kingdom began over 100 years ago. Because of its central location, the city has over the centuries remained the most convenient trading zone for people coming from all four regions of the Kingdom.

Despite a constantly growing population, the city’s security agents, including the Royal Swaziland Police, have over the years been able to ensure that the marvelous city is one of the safest to visit or live in. When one holds a conversation with the older generation about Manzini, they have so much to say about the great strides that have over the decades been achieved, not only in terms of improving the face of the city but also giving it a warm and welcoming feel to visitors.
