The Acholi community set a the minimum bride price

In ancient times, different ethnicities and tribes had their own ways on how they conducted marriage and especially the crucial point of bride price.

This has however been eroded due to evolution of times and the infiltration of new cultures.

Some of the basic things that used to be done are nolonger done and people do what pleases them.

However, the Acholi community has decided to be different from others and reinforce their values amd traditions in regards to marriage.

Forget where the groom has been bringing meagre or tons of things to the brides place. The minimum requirements have now been set and you either walk away if you can’t afford them and if you can afford, bring them and then add the rest not listed later at your own liking.

These are a cow between 200,000 -500,000 shillings, a goat of between 50,000-100,000 shillings, a chicken, spear and bundle of tobacco all at 10,000 plus cash of 5m shillings.

This seems quite like a bargain for most men who have been spending millions of things on girls. Maybe its time to go the Acholi way and grab yourself an Acholi girl at a much lower price though women are not commodities.
