Prior to the nuptials, the teenager’s family had auctioned her for marriage, a two-week event which attracted prominent figures in an epic competition.

The groom beat at least five other men who had expressed interest to marry Nyalong in line with Dinka culture after each failed to match his 520 heifers, three Toyota V8 cars and KSh 1m (N3.5m) to win the beauty’s heart.

Among the competitors was the former commissioner of Awerial and the current Deputy Governor of Eastern Lakes State among other who is who in the Africa’s youngest independent state.

In Dinka culture, any man willing to marry must convince the girl’s family he has the desired qualities which include ability to take care of their daughter.

It is from here that contestants are carefully ‘auditioned’ before letting them battle it out in a long search for the lucky son-in-law able to meet dowry terms.

Women lawyers from South Sudan have called out the government to investigate the bizarre incident and take action against those involved in the auction exercise.

The lawyers said the practice though forms part of Dinka’s culture, it amounts to commoditization of women. You may also like this Tribal Bigot: Peter Obi finally replies el-Rufai
