According to watchtutorials, Swaziland is a small country located in southern Africa, bordered by Mozambique and South Africa. It has an estimated population of 1.3 million people, making it the smallest sovereign state in Africa. The majority of the population (over 95%) are ethnic Swazis and speak siSwati as their first language. English is also spoken widely, especially in urban areas. The country is predominantly Christian, with a large percentage of Roman Catholics and Anglicans. Other religions represented include Islam, Hinduism, and Baha’i Faiths. The population of Swaziland is relatively young; around 34% are under 14 years old while only 4% are over 65 years old. This is due to the country’s high fertility rate which stands at 3.5 births per woman – one of the highest rates in Africa. Life expectancy is also low compared to other countries on the continent; at 56 for men and 58 for women according to the latest estimates from 2017. There has been some progress in recent years with improved access to healthcare services leading to improved maternal health and lower infant mortality rates but much more needs to be done to improve living conditions across the country.
