Bless Their Union, Never Criticise – Reactions As Underage South Sudanese Boy And Girl Marry

Published

The wedding of two South Sudanese teenagers, Buomkuoth Wiyual and Nyabuay Thiol Biel, drew mixed emotions.

On December 18, 2021, Wiyual, 16, and his 15-year-old companion Biel married in Gambella, Ethiopia.

Both parents and religious leaders are said to have graced and blessed the occasion.

South Sudan’s legal marriage age is 18, according to local media.

The wedding images of the young pair have gone viral on Facebook, with many people criticising the planned marriage.

Parents and religious authorities who promoted the marriage, according to John Ndungu, are to blame. He wrote:

“I blame the parents and the religious leaders. They’re supposed to be role models and mentors to young generations. Some parents are so materialistic, I say this because the girl’s parents I’m very sure were after the dowry which in Sudanese culture is hefty amount of money or herds of cattle,” he wrote. 

 

“Where will the teens start life from? No education completed I’m sure. How will they take care of themselves in terms of basic necessities? No job, no money, education cut short, I pity the girl #NyabuayThiolBiel, she will be made a mother at very tender age. No mother experience and all that.

 

“The organizing committee failed them too, look at the trouser Buomkuoth is wearing, it’s short , too short on his wedding day putting on a trouser like that surely? And the bride bleached the face alone and forgot other body parts.”
