In most parts of the world, marriages are events that people often look forward to. However, in some cultures, organising a wedding is no easy feat and families involved will usually feel the sting in their pockets.
South Africa is a country blessed with different cultures and traditions, its different tribes have their diverse ways of doing things.
There have been several reports of people from the eastern part of the country charging a high bride price when a female from their family wants to get married.
Briefly.co.za recently gathered photos of what a young man was asked to bring as a bride price.
The photos were shared on Facebook by a man, identified as Promise Nony, who claimed to be a friend of the groom.
Promise, however, did not mention the name of the state where the occasion was held but from the couple’s outfits, it seems to be an eastern wedding.
The young man who was quite surprised at the large number of items explained in his caption that he feels the pain of his friend for having to pay an expensive bride price.
