Cattle impressive – Simelane
Zachariah Simelane, the uncle to the bride was very impressed by the lobola cattle that Prime Minister Dr Sibusiso Dlamini presented to his family.
Simelane together with other family members were very excited when the Dlamini family showed them cattle brought as bride price. The cattle were brought in, in two trucks and they seemed big and healthy. Women ululated when Vilakati showed them cattle, singing praises.
As per the Swazi custom, the Simelane family in turn presented the Dlamini family with one herd known as Inhlabisa bayeni, which is meant to be eaten by the groom’s family during the lobola weekend.
