The Classroom - Episode 7: What happens in lobola negotiations?

The Classroom - Episode 7: What happens in lobola negotiations?

Welcome to the Classroom! This is the seventh episode of my weekly show about all the things they never taught us in school.

When the South Africans fall in love and get married, they still, up to this day, pay lobola for the brides-to-be. What is lobola exactly? Who is suppost to negotiate and decide lobola? What do you say or talk about when you negotiate lobola? How much is it?

For this love negotiation Classroom I am joined by James Seetelo, a young Tswana man who even happened to hear her sister's lobola negotiations.

Music:
Love Story by Shezzy.K
Wedding Song by Bill Frueh
