Eswatini Prime Minister Ambrose Dlamini is well but staying in isolation after contracting the coronavirus.

The government released a statement revealing the prime minister’s diagnosis Sunday night.

The 52-year-old premier of Africa’s last absolute monarchy of 1.2 million, formerly known as Swaziland, will work from home until he is cleared of the virus.

“All my contacts for the past week are being tested and are expected to self isolate and follow the necessary health guidelines,” he said.
