Shocking scene as two South Sudanese teenagers, identified as Buomkuoth Wiyual and Nyabuay Thiol Biel, gets married.
Buomkuoth Wiyual, aged16, and his 15-year-old partner Nyabuay Thiol Biel got married on December 18, last year, in Gambella, Ethiopia.

Below is the comment that was written by John Ndungu, standing against the joining together of these two underage newly-wedded couple.
“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 a hefty amount of money or herds of cattle,” John Ndungu 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 a very tender age. No mother experience and all that,” he continued.
“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,” he said.
This is nothing different from child marriage as child marriage is a formal marriage or informal union of children before the age of 18. This marriage is void.
