Court Orders Family To Return Dowry To a Kenyan Man

Although dowery was used by the traditional African societies as a token of appreciation to the bride's parents, things have changed currently and most of the people are using it as a business.

Today, the high court made a grand ruling ordering a family to return three cows to in-laws which had paid a dowery for their daughter after it was discovered she is ill mannered and was not a virgin.

According to the charge sheet that was tabled by the prosecutor before principal magistrate Norman Nyaga, the dowery payment ceremony occured shortly before the the wedding.

Conferming the incident, the area senior chief disclosed that the family have already received an order and have effected it. "I want to urge the girls from this village to carry themselves with alot of dignity and abstain from intimacy before marriage." Thanks for reading my article.
