A traditional court in Zimbabwe has fined Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai for breaking a cultural taboo by paying a bride price in November.
He was ordered to pay two cows, two sheep and 10 metres of cotton cloth.
The prime minister refused to attend the hearing because it was "manifestly illegal", his lawyer said.
Mr Tsvangirai paid a bride price to marry a businesswoman before calling off their relationship, saying it had been "hijacked" for political reasons.
