    I don't know, the transaction was barter. The fine is also not cash.

    “Since Sabiiti has sired children, he has to pay a fine that usually consists of millet flour, a jerrycan of Tonto, a goat or sheep,” Mr Katatumba reveals.
    ~
    Tonto is a traditional Ugandan fermented beverage made from bananas. It is also referred to as mwenge bigere. Tonto is made by ripening green bananas in a pit for several days. The juice is then extracted, filtered, and diluted before being mixed with ground and roasted sorghum. This mixture is fermented for two to four days.

    I wonder if bankruptcy is allowed and if it is allowed is a “bride price” dischargeable debt?

    hmm.. good point. It might be cheaper for him to write off the loss on his taxes and pick up a newer model with less miles.

    There is a reason why many foreigners from 3rd world countries are eager to wed their daughters off to westerners.

    the poorest one Here is still considered rich there.
