Lobola

Lobola means ‘dowry’ and is an old (South) African tradition that after negotiations the broom pays the dowry in cows but the family of the bride pays for the wedding and usually plays even. The more cows; the bigger (more important) the wedding. The ‘lobola’ in the picture says that there is a fairly big wedding on its way in this village.
