Mzansi on why lobola is still relevant today

Briefly News previously reported that the ever-evolving society that people live in today has allowed them to do things the way they want. Even the process of lobola has slightly changed. Today, people can pay for lobola with money, while in ancient times, it was paid for with cows.

According to an article published by News24, a cow was the most important part of the lobola process.
