Go around the world and you’re bound to run into weird traditions but you have to admit it’s difficult to come up with one more weirder than this.
In Uganda, a tribe known as the Banyankole go to the extreme to make sure a groom is ready to satisfy the needs of his bride once the marriage is consummated.
According to face2faceafrica, the Banyankole have a huge role for a woman’s aunty before her marriage can go through.
Prior to the wedding, the aunt must have a one night stand with the groom to check out his ‘goods’. She’s supposed to bang his brains out to ensure that after marriage, he is up to the task of satisfying the niece.
And the groom is not the only one who would be tested. The bride herself must submit to a check of her virginity by her aunt, which she must pass to be eligible to get married.
All of this must go on before a marriage between two Banyankole’s would be allowed to go through.
