Swaziland's Home Affairs Minister, Princess Tsandzile, has announced that, once again, the annual non-working public holiday in Swaziland to mark King Mswati III's birthday would be observed on Friday, April 22, 2016, due to its set date falling midweek, in 2016.

The usual date for the King's Birthday annual public holiday is April 19, in the past this public holiday has often been moved around, for a variety or reasons (2015-03-12, 2014-04-15 and 2012-04-14), though not always (2013-04-17).

Such last-minute announcements of non-working public holidays dates is common in Swaziland, although these last-minute announcements of public holidays dates are usually tied-in to the traditional/religious public holidays of Umhlanga and Incwala (2015-12-24, 2015-08-13, 2015-01-06, 2014-08-06, 2013-12-02, 2013-07-23, 2012-07-07, 2011-12-09, 2011-06-16, 2010-12-21, 2010-08-12,...).
