According To A Man On Social Media Venda People Marry Their Cousins And Sisters

In many parts of Africa, arranged marriages are still common. When one would suppose that choosing a life partner is only the duty of the person, families step in, with their preferences taking precedence.

As recorded history demonstrates, same-blood marriages have existed throughout Africa for generations. Over 500 years before the Common Era, the famous Egyptian queen Cleopatra married her brother Ptolemy XIII (BCE).

Many Africans have attempted to preserve things in the family for the purpose of farms, landed possessions, and kingdoms by procreating with persons from within a relatively restricted kinship unit.

First cousin marriages are the most well-known type of same-blood marriage, however consanguineous marriages can also include other family members. Relationships between brothers and sisters appear to be where the boundary is drawn.

Related people marrying each other and firming up a relationship is not such a common thing in many of our African communities, but when it does happen, it leaves many in shock and wondering how the family could possibly approve such a thing to happen.

A man on twitter shared news about venda oeople that left many of the othee readers in ahock, this is what he said:

" The section of the vhavenda called valemba or vhashavi practice that kind of marital relationships. They marry their sisters, cousins and before a young girl could be married, her father sleeps with her before the boyfriend taste the juice."

 Is what he said true about the venda tribe?.
