Dowry in my some communities in Kenya, is an art of negotiation, sort of like the haggling that you’d do in a bazaar market. The Negotiations are meant to be a measure of compromise and communication within reasonable means and undertanding for both sides of the families.

The Bride price depends with the parents of the intended wife, since most of them have different calculations and opinions on how the bride price should be paid.

There are some who can even request for a bride price that could be equivalent to that of her daughter’s education since baby class to University. To make the matters worse, is if the lady studied abroad in an advanced University, it would be much expensive. That’s how most of Kikuyu’s do a tribe in Kenya.
