Court Allegedly Orders In-laws To Refund Dowry to a Man After His Wife Left

Marriage is considered to be one of the most sacred things in Africa. This is because it helps to continue one's lineage and create more relationships. Currently, getting marriage might not be such a good idea especially if you have not known your partner for long. This is because several marriages have ended a few days after the wedding.

In Kenya, it is crucial to pay for a dowry when marrying a woman. This is a symbol that the man values the woman he is getting married to. Even though most Kenyans give animals as dowry, the process of giving the dowry depends on the traditions of the bride.

One Mr Wilberforce Saenyi Murunga is a happy man after the court ordered his In-laws to refund his dowry. According to a reliable source, Mr Murunga and his brother Fred Matumbayi went to Kiungani at the Chief’s office in Baraton on Saturday at 9.30 a.m. to pick up his three cows and a goat from his in-laws. This is after a court order had been given.

Mr Murunga took the step after his wife deserted their matrimonial home.
