Mzansi on why Lobola is still relevant today, unlike other cultural practices

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.

Even though the lobola practice has changed a little, this practice is still popular today. When @AdvoBarryRoux asked why Christians have not abandoned it like many other African cultural practices, people did not hold back and here is what they had to say.
