Show Summary

The Wapare and Wataveta observe a ceremony called ngashu ya mashitu. The details are many and curious, but the gist of it is to give the participating youths and girls the qualification for begetting children. Any child born of a person not so initiated used to be put to death, and in the event of the uninitiated mother dying in childbirth the seducer had to pay full blood money. . . . The most heinous crime known to the Wachagga is sexual intercourse by an uncircumcised boy with a female of any age. Formerly the guilty couple were taken to a place above or below the inhabited lands, and being laid one upon the other, stakes were driven through their bodies and limbs.3
