Lawra: Lady Calls a Bluff of Bride Price Tagging it Outdated and fake

Olivia Ziem Tizaayel is from Lawra Municipality

A lady confirmed to be from Lawra in one of the municipalities in Upper West has referred to bride price as inexistent and that it is rather a selling price.

The lady venting her anger on Facebook was identified as Olivia Ziem Tizaayel and had to argue with quite a number of people over the issue whilst others agreed with her on the issue.

The lady’s statement in a post was:

“Bride Price: An outdated tradition holding gender stereotypes”

Explaining further, she questioned if she is a commodity to be purchased as being done during such occasions

She also explained that it creates an ownership mentality in men who at a least opportunity yell at women telling the woman her bride price has been paid hence the need to exercise control over their wives.
