Africa consists of many different tribes from different countries. This means that they have some things in common and some things they do differ.Today,we look at the tribe that is found in Namibia.This is how they do things there.
The wife swapping tradition has existed for centuries amongst the Ovahimba and Ovazemba tribes of Northern Namibia.
According to the demands of this culture, a husband can allow his wife to sleep with any male visitor that chooses to spend the night in their home.
When a male visitor comes with his own wife, he can reach an agreement to exchange wives for the night.
Within the Northern Namibian tribes, the men are the heads of their families and they possess more rights than the women.
These men make most of the decisions, while the women are left with the tasks of procreating, feeding and taking care of the home.
The women see nothing with this tradition and do not mind giving themselves to other men.
Some women also offer girlfriends to their husbands, if there is a need to. They consider it to be a sign of friendship.
The people continued to practise it because of the belief that it strengthens friendships and reduces incidents of promiscuity.
Many Ovahimba couples also engage in swapping because they seek to add variety to their regular sex lives or to also satisfy their curiosity. For others, they simply get involved because they see it as a healthy outlet through which they can strengthen their relationships.
Other people think this is wrong and it should be stopped.Many tweets were not happy whereas few of them were thinking of going to Namibia.
More about African tribes.
The ethnic groups of Africa number in the thousands, with each population generally having its own language (or dialect of a language) and culture.
The ethnolinguistic groups include various Afroasiatic, Khoisan, Niger-Congo and Nilo-Saharan populations.
The official population count of the various ethnic groups in Africa is highly uncertain, both due to limited infrastructure to perform censuses and due to the rapid population growth.
There have also been accusations of deliberate misreporting in order to give selected ethnicities numerical superiority (as in the case of Nigeria's Hausa, Fulani, Yoruba and Igbo people).
A 2009 genetic clustering study, which genotyped 1327 polymorphic markers in various African populations, identified six ancestral clusters. The clustering corresponded closely with ethnicity, culture and language.
A 2018 whole genome sequencing study of the world's populations observed similar clusters among the populations in Africa.
At K=9, distinct ancestral components defined the Afroasiatic-speaking populations inhabiting North Africa and Northeast Africa; the Nilo-Saharan-speaking populations in Northeast Africa and East Africa; the Ari populations in Northeast Africa.
The Niger-Congo-speaking populations in West-Central Africa, West Africa, East Africa and Southern Africa; the Pygmy populations in Central Africa; and the Khoisan populations in Southern Africa
