See closer photos of the 3 wives of the new Oba of Benin Plus why they covered their mouths yesterday

These are close up photos of the three wives of the 39th Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare ll N'Ogidigan looking stunning at his coronation yesterday. The new Oba, who is 63 years old is demanded by custom to marry three wives. 

Why the Oba and his wives had handkerchiefs over their mouth?

The Oba usually covers his mouth because when he talks he is the supreme authority. Whatever he says is final.

People talk on his behalf most of the time and whatever they proclaim becomes the Law with immediate effect.
His wives covered their mouths as a sign of submission.
