A story published on a website called The Spirit Whispers claims that Icelandic authorities pay males
USD 5,000 (R78 000) a month for marrying Icelandic women.
Men from Africa are said to have priority. The reason given for the government’s generosity is not the lack of beauty or intelligence among Icelandic women, but a lack of males in the country.
Thousands of men from different countries including South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana were reported to have already been settled in Iceland.
The government of Iceland further added that should they cancel the ongoing process in future they will publicly announce.
