African Tribe where sex is offered to guests in expression of honour

African Tribe where sex is offered to guests in expression of honourDid you know that there exists an African tribe in Namibian where sex is offered to guests to express honour and foster relationships?

Well, among the Ovahimba and Ovazimba ethnic groups in the Kunene and Omusati regions in Northern Namibia continue to practice this culture, which has defied western influence and agitation.

In the communities, the husbands daughters get married to are chosen by their fathers. When a visitor comes knocking, a man shows his approval and pleasure of seeing his guest by giving him the Okujepisa Omukazendu treatment.

This practice literally means that his wife is given to his guest to spend the night while the husband sleeps in another room.

In a case where there is no available room, her husband will sleep outside.

The woman has little or no opinion in the decision making. Submission to her husband’s demands come first.

She has an option of refusing to sleep with him but has to sleep in the same room as the guest.

She is also entitled to give her friends to her husband when they visit but this rarely happens.

The Himba (singular: OmuHimba, plural: OvaHimba) are an indigenous people with an estimated population of about 50,000 people[1] living in northern Namibia, in the Kunene Region (formerly Kaokoland) and on the other side of the Kunene River in southern Angola.

There are also a few groups left of the OvaTwa, who are also OvaHimba, but are hunter-gatherers.

Culturally distinguishable from the Herero people, the OvaHimba are a semi-nomadic, pastoralist people and speak OtjiHimba, a variety of Herero, which belongs to the Bantu family within Niger–Congo.

The OvaHimba are semi-nomadic as they have base homesteads where crops are cultivated, but may have to move within the year depending on rainfall and where there is access to water-Wikipedia
