The African Dowry

with 4 comments

A man of limited means, he’s proud of his boys beginning school.
He intends to marry his live-in girlfriend of years.

Intrigued, I prodded him – If not earlier, why now?
Money! – he exclaimed.

He is financially sound now. He will marry the mother of his boys, finally.
He is, now, capable of paying the Lobola.
