When a Kenyan man went to pay dowry, his in-laws forced him to do something unexpected, leaving him and his family speechless.
Nahashon revealed that his family traveled from Murang’a to Makueni to pay the bride price, only to find themselves being asked to help with the event’s cuisine.
According to the suitor, their in-laws informed them that they would be required to prepare for themselves and other visitors, as is the Akamba tribe’s custom.
In an interview with Tuko, a Kenyan news publication, the guy said they agreed to several goods demanded by the in-laws.
When they told Nahashon’s family that they were meant to cook the meals, he felt it was a joke.
He said that they ultimately got around to cooking, despite the fact that the in-laws had only given cooking pots.
He wrote this on his page :
After arriving in Makueni, we were immediately asked to start cooking for the event. We had to be shown where the firewood and the kitchen are, and we started cooking to our disappointment.
I have never seen this before but we ate together after we finished cooking and the ceremony was successful.
