Old Man Rejects Millions Of Shillings For Old Man Rejects Millions Of Shillings For Her Daughter's Bride Price, Accepts Only ksh 7

An old man from Tana River County has surprised his in-laws after rejecting Millions of shillings offered as bride price for his daughter. He instead demanded and accepted Ksh 7 only.

Hussein Maro's daughter had asked her fiancee and his family to prepare a huge token for her father, only for him to ask for a few coins in exchange for her daughter.

"My fellow elders. I am so excited to have my daughter get married into a good family. As my daughter and I agreed. we shall take seven shillings only," he politely told them.

The grooms family were astounded by his request, prompting the elders to call him aside for private talk. They wondered whether he meant Ksh 70,000 or Ksh 700,000 and opted to cancel the negotiations.

However, the groom agreed on the proposal fronted by the father-in-law after he was asked for consent.

The family searched among themselves and raised Ksh 6 only, forcing the ceremony to be delayed as they sought the remaining Ksh 1.

The groom's brother was sent to the shops to get the remaining coin, which he found and brought later on.

It is only then that Mzee Maro blessed them and gave them a nod for marriage.
