A Kenyan man left Maina Kageni flabbergasted after he confessed what he and his friends were asked as part of the dowry.
According to the man, the family of the girl asked for cash over the fact that the girl suckled her mother’s breasts dry during childhood.
We went for a dowry ceremony among the Duruma.
We were asked to give cash to them for helping seducing our woman .
Maina you have to pay this ‘fee’ in cash.
We gave all the cash we had, we even had to ask for cash through Mpesa.
By the end of it all we had given Ksh 1.5 million.
The caller adds,
We were also asked for cash to compensate the fact that the woman we wanted had left her mums’ breast dry.
According to the elders lazima tungelipia.
Another fan adds,
My wife is South African and I have been asked for 700,000 South African Rand which is Ksh 4.9 million.
We have a kid and I love her so I have no option here.
The money is a lot given that elders from her home are still asking for more stuff.
Her whole family is here but they want me to take the dowry to South Africa.
Why do they take advantage of us men?
