Swaziland orphans struggle to study

With government failing to pay fees that it was supposed to, many face expulsion.



    More than 200,000 orphans in the African nation of Swaziland are at risk of being expelled from their schools.

    They are supposed to have their fees paid by the government of King Mswati, the 3rd, but the government has not come up with the cash.
