In Latuka, men kidnap the women they want to marry,then go and propose to the father. If the father accepts the proposal,he will beat the man up as a form of acceptance ceremony, if the father refuses, the man can still marry the girl without consent.

Latuka

Like many traditions in Africa, the marriage rite of the Latuka tribe reeks of patriarchy. Kidnapping a woman and giving her no say in whom she gets to spend the rest of her life with takes us back decades in the progress achieved by feminism. Culture is not static; it should and must change when it is found to be harmful.

  1. That’s not true. It’s called elope. Which is an agreement between the two to declare. Kidnapping woman is prohibited and if anyone commits it he will get dealt with accordingly by the victims family.
