Underage boy and girl wed, netizens react (PHOTOs).

Social media users have reacted after the news of two underage tied the knot.

The 16-year-old boy, Wiyual and Biel, 15 are said to have married in Gambella area, Ethiopia.

Netizens reacted to the photos doing rounds on social networks and condemned the event saying that the parents and religious leaders should be put behind bars.

One of the social users identified as John Ndungu reacted saying;

“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 hefty amount of money or herds of cattle”.

“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 very tender age. No mother experience and all that.”

“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.”
