King Letsie III reportedly delivered 96 beasts. Ubuhle bendoda🤣🤣And Mamazala then asked: where do I put them? And His Majesty delivered a farm and its pastures.😀

That's a no from me. That may be an onerous requirement for a man earning little but peanuts for a millionaire. Think of the gardener or factory worker who also wants to lobola. The comparison of price tags is an elitist thing. It's done in a certain class not among all women.

Am actually surprised that this is new to you. One of the reasons the payments keep going up, is the competitive nature that the custom has become. If the neighbour's daughter whose character we despise was paid for 20k, why wld our highly regarded daughter be the same or less?

Agreed! It needs regulating instead of abolishing it - lobola has become exploitation and many unscrupulous parents are taking advantage - traditional values gone down the drain.

I don't agree with a maximum. Pay what you can afford to pay. If it's R500 yikho lokho. Angithi it's a demonstration of your ability to take care of your new bride. It's like buying a house. Your bond is based on what you can afford. There are no ceilings on house prices.

This is why phela there's this inferiority complex if no lobola is paid for you. This is why said there is a status symbol associated with ukulotsholwa. You are given respect and the more the lobola, the more the respect.

They do. I have heard women compare their lobola price tags. The amount paid now becomes a benchmark for her worth. Which is something I disagree with.

Not a grading system but rather an affordability scale. E.g lobola should be 10% of the man's annual salary.

As an adult, if you know you have to pay lobola one day, why aren't you saving? With a gender pay gap you still want women to "lend" you money for their lobola?

If you haven’t read any of this as an African child, your childhood is incomplete. And if you have read some of them, which one is your favourite?

so Chimamanda is just walking around with knowledge of kainene's whereabouts. How does she sleep at night with such heavy information and it doesn't give her migraines??? After God and poverty, fear writers.

I was 10. I told my mom at 14. She ignored it. She admitted she knew all along when I was 47. She is still with him today.

There is a real battle for the black reader market. Publishing houses that previously excluded black writers are now in a scramble for the black market. People are recognising the power of the black reader.

The EFF could double its support in next year’s elections at the expense of the ANC, which could shed as much as 10%, according to a survey conducted by the SA Institute of Race Relations
