A Bukusu man has gone to court to sue his daughter’s husband for failing to pay dowry.

Protus Mamati went to a court in Kitale, demanding for his son-in-law to pay dowry to the last bit, which is compulsory in the Bukusu tradition.

Mamati wants Patrick Marango (son-in-law) to pay the following:
  • 20 litres of Paraffin
  • A pair of gumboots
  • One hat
  • Two bed sheets
  • Two blankets
  • Two goats
  • Two cows
  • Sh50,000 and Sh20,000 for himself and his daughter respectively
The son-in-law told the court that he needed more time to settle the dowry since they have three kids together. He said he needed time to prepare well so that he can invite his father-in-law formally. He also said that his father-in-law rejected to receive the dowry in bits

The two families had already met but failed to agree, since the son-in-law’s family had only offered two goats when Protus wanted a maximum of 13.

The cause will be heard on Thursday, November 16th 2017.

But the hat, that's the real deal breaker.
