63-yr-old Gborbu Wulomo picks 12-yr-old girl as customary wife


63-yr-old Gborbu Wulomo picks 12-yr-old girl as customary wife

In Nungua, the air is thick with tradition as the customary marriage between the Gborbu Wulomo, Nuumo Borketey Laweh Tsuru XXXIII, and a young girl named Naa Okromo unfolds. The age difference is striking: the venerable Gborbu Wulomo is 63 years, while Naa Okromo is 12 years.

By the customs of their community, Naa Okromo now assumes the traditional name Naa Ayemoede. But this union is not complete without further rites. Naa Ayemoede is to undergo a second customary ceremony, one centered on purification. This rite will empower her to fulfill all the duties expected of her as the wife of the Gborbu Wulomo, including the crucial role of procreation.

According to tradition, the Gborbu Wulomo, having assumed his authority, must also take a ‘bue ekpaa yoo’, his customary wife, also known as ‘sɛiheyoo’. This solemn rite occurs only once in the lifetime of the Gborbu Wulomo-Shitse.
