Dear MEL Topic Readers

Police arrest 6 after a teenage boy died in an adulthood initiation ritual in Kenya

Adulthood initiation is said to be a one-way bridge from one’s youth to adulthood. It was a traditional ceremony designed to teach a fifteen-year-old boy the customary values of his people, the Kikuyu, Kenya’s most populous ethnic group. The ritual was held during the school holidays. The boy went on a trip to be bulled to harden him which seemed to have gone too far. He was then circumcised, isolated from this family and found dead.

Although such initiation ritual has been practiced for a very long time, deaths haven’t occurred often during or after the ceremony.

The boy had good grades in school and wanted to be a neurosurgeon.

Read the article and learn how a traditional custom turned to be a fatal incident.
