Nhlangano (Swazi: [n̩ɬáŋanɔ]) is the fourth largest town in Eswatini. It is the capital of the southern district of Shiselweni. The town was formerly known as Goedgegun, but the name was changed to Nhlangano,[when?] meaning "the meeting place". Nhlangano is located beside the Ngwavuma River.[1] King George VI of the United Kingdom met with King Sobhuza in the town in 1947 to thank him for the war effort during the Second World War.[2]
