Our Lobola!!

It is a tradition in many countries in southern Africa to have a Lobola before the wedding, in which the family of the groom offers gifts such as livestock to the family of the bride, in order to compensate for taking away a useful member of the family. All of the tunics were made in Zambia specially for this evening. There weren't any goats at our Lobola, just a lot of family and food!
