Meet The New Queen Of The Bamoun Kingdom!
Heyouna is just 15years old and has been willingly given out to marriage by her parents to Nabil Mbombo Njoya, 28years old newly installed Bamoun king.
Heyouna might not yet be matured, but article 144 of the civil code makes her ripe for marriage with the consent of her parents. She’s the one with whom the new king will carry out the lah-kam rites !
The purpose of this rite, well known in the Bamoun tradition and culture, is that the young girl who has become a wife offers her virginity to the new king in order for him to complete his initiation rites.
Would you give your daughter out at this age ?
