Unconfirmed reports indicate that a 42 year old man has died after performing a traditional ritual on a –Musinde “a young man who is about to be circumcised”.
According to Radio Maisha 9PM news in Kenya, the man whose name was not revealed performed a traditional routine by giving a Musinde a cow (cattle) and sang some traditional Bukusu songs. He dropped down and died instantly after the ritual.
In what is rather a bizarre incident, it’s not clear whether the man was sick or his death is in any way related to the ritual in the ongoing circumcision ceremony.
The Bukusu community is well known for practicing its traditional circumcision ceremony accompanied by rituals performed by elders.
Stay tuned for details when they become available.
