“I have a daughter, I can’t sell my daughter, she is so expensive that 99 goats that eat grass cannot exchange for my daughter.” Pastor T stated.
Life Church International preacher Apostle Pastor T. Mwangi opposes the tradition of a man paying dowry for a woman they intend to marry stating that one should honour the wife ‘s parent and not act like they are buying the woman.
According to Pastor T, the requirement of paying dowry is a backward culture that is outdated adding that it is a form of slavery.
Pastor T also opened up that he did not pay dowry for his wife even with the continuous talk from his uncles and in laws adding that the worth of his wife is in the blood of Jesus.
He told them that he is from a kingdom that does not buy people and does not propagate slavery.
“Honour is a communication you are capable, able to take care of that child.” Apostle T. Mwangi said, adding that most marriage are not working because women are bought in form of dowry.
