“Regret it” – Man who used over N2m to get cows for bride price divorces wife after 3 years

A man, Stha Mntlane Tomose, has dropped many jaws after he shared that he divorced his ex-wife whom he spent over 2 million naira to pay for her lobola just after 3 years.

Lobola is an African custom form of bride price where the bridegroom’s family makes a payment with cows or money shortly before their marriage.

The young man reacted to a post on Twitter where he explained that his ex-wife’s family requested a payment of over 2 million naira for her Lobola.

According to him, his ex-in-laws requested 9 cows from him and he estimated each of the cows to be close to N280,000.

Hence, he spent over 2 million naira to get the cow his ex-in-laws requested from him before he got married to his ex-wife.

The man bitterly explained that despite the amount of money he spent, he asked for a divorce and broke it off with her.

When asked by social media users if he can request for a refund from his ex-in-laws, he explained that in his culture it is unacceptable.
