    SHESELWENI, Swaziland (Reuters) - Swaziland's king has forbidden Swazi men from having sex with
    teenage girls for the next five years and slapped a fine of one cow on those breaking the law.

    "Those of us who were about to propose love to these girls should wait until the end of the five-year

    She said the measures were needed to reintroduce "chastity and traditional values."

    Mswati can choose a new wife every year from among thousands of virgins at an annual festival

    grappling with growing poverty as its birth rate soars and breadwinners die from HIV/AIDS.

    Estimates vary, but one U.N. study estimates close to a third of the country's adult population is
    infected with the HIV virus that causes AIDS.

    The country is also sub-Saharan Africa's last absolute monarchy, so the King's word amounts to la
