It’s Olufuko time!
The Olufuko annual festival kicked off earlier yesterday with a traditional dancing ceremony and an introduction of 82 brides. Olufuko is an Oshiwambo word meaning wedding. It is an ancient festival held in Outapi in the Omusati Region. The festival was reintroduced in 2012 after being dormant for decades. Olufuko is a process where girls from the age of 14 years old are prepared for womanhood and commissioned as ‘brides’. After Olufuko the bride is free to marry. Pregnancy before marriage, but after Olufuko is socially acceptable. People under the age of 16 are considered minors under the Namibian Constitution.
