In this African tribe, a man must kidnap any lady he likes for marriage and inform her father later

While in other parts of the world, a man must first woo and secure the consent of a lady he is attracted to and wants to marry and then proceed to get her parents’ consent, the practice is different in Latuka, South Sudan.


kidnap

Per their culture and traditions, a suitor must kidnap a lady he intends to marry, by employing the services of other men together with whom he will lay an ambush for, chase and arrest the lady.

The captured lady is then taken to her suitor’s home where she’s kept against her will before the man informs her father later.

As if all those are not interesting enough, the lady’s father must beat up his son-in-law-to-be to show that he approves of his intended marriage to his daughter.

It is unsure how intense or extensive the beatings take but when a woman is spotted by a man and is kidnapped, it takes away her choice and right to make an input into which man she spends the rest of her life with.

In other parts of the world, there is usually a gentlemanly ceremony of handing over a woman to a man, mostly by the father of the bride-to-be, after both the man and the woman have agreed to live together but Latuka practises the direct opposite.

After kidnapping the girl, her suitor returns to her family with elderly male relatives to officially ask for her hand in marriage.

With the girl still in his possession, her father is left with a choice on whether or not to agree to the proposal by this suitor. The response of a “yes” or “no” from the father comes with its separate ceremonial activities.

If the girl’s father agrees to the proposal from this suitor, he is expected to beat his prospective son-in-law to show his approval to their proposal.

Reports say the beatings signifies that the man is willing to be beaten for his wife since it’s about the sacrifices he’s willing to make for the woman he loves.

Equally interesting is the fact that if the father’s response is “no”, the suitor has the discretion to decide whether to return the kidnapped daughter or go ahead to marry her regardless.

This rather interesting practise has been a subject of debate and continues to be as many people are of the view that it is an afront to the right of a girl to choose who she is in love with and wants to spend her life with.

The Latuka or the Otuho are a small ethnic group who have practised subsistence farming for long. They keep large herds of cattle, sheep and goats in the mountains of South Sudan

Common among the crops they grow are groundnuts, sorghum, maize, and tubers like yam and potato.

Latukas are said to embody a communal lifestyle where nothing is kept from anybody: they practise a system of sharing and as such, no single person rules over them. Instead, they have a group of elders who are vested with the authority to guide them.

They are a known conservative tribe that forbids many forms of religious penetrations and other cultures, including marriage which remains unchanged over the years despite criticism.

A Thika GK prison officer has been arrested by the police for allegedly raping a stranded 21-year-old woman, while pretending to be accommodating her in his house last week.

The Kenyan prison officer identified as Amos Momanyi, allegedly raped the mother of one after he hosted her for a night in his house on October 4, after failed attempts to trace her husband, a purported prison warder at the same prison.

The woman reportedly came to the prison around 10 pm to search for her husband, but after a failed attempt to trace him, the suspect offered to help her for the night since they came from the same tribe.

A statement released after his arrest reads;

“The accused officer volunteered to house the complainant since they come from the same region after failed attempts to trace her purported husband at the prison quarters. He went back to sleep at the guard room, leaving her in his house. During the night, the accused returned to the house wild and raped her.”

Commenting on the incident, the woman said she was searching for her husband after he failed to continue providing for their three-year-old son. She said at first the officer looked supportive, only for him to turn wild in the night

The rape victim said;

“He left the house for me but deep in the night, he came back. He threatened to shoot me if I raised alarm. The next day, I went to the prison authorities to continue searching for my husband, but I still couldn’t trace him.”

The woman reported the incident to authorities after she was taken to Thika Police Station for help in tracing her husband.
