New Sultan Rejects Proposed 14- Year-old Wife, Says She's A Minor 

The new Sultan of Bamoun in Cameroon, HRH Nabil Mbombo Njoya, has declined offer of a 14-year-old virgin in marriage as tradition demands. 

According to tradition, the wife of a new Sultan must come from Njim Monchouh family to terminate traditional rites known as “Lah-Kam”

Sultan Njoya refused the 14-year-old girl offered by the family because she is a minor and opted to marry his long time girlfriend instead.

He has however promised to sponsor the 14 year-old from secondary school right up to University.
