In order to qulify couples had to “be Djiboutian, be a love match, one of them had to have a job, and had to demonstrate they had enough money to bring up a young family.”

“I am very excited, and I hope to have sons and daughters from my marriage,” Amina Omar Aden, one of the 30 brides all dressed in white gowns, said.

“I am very happy, because it is the 30th anniversary of our country and we are marrying. Ibrahim Loita has helped us so much,” Ibrahim Dhaban Hufane a bridegroom from the Arte region told the BBC.

Dubai businessman Sheikh Ibrahim Said Ahmed Loita paid for clothes, hotel party and accommodation and the dowry of $400 given to each bride and an undisclosed amount to her family.

The mass wedding was even attended by the nations (dictator) President and First Lady.
