FGM, STIGMA AND HIV
In some cases, after undergoing FGM, she is usually married off, for dowry that in turn goes to pay for school fees for her brothers. After producing some babies for her husband, she receives a Co-wife. Due to ignorance, lack of medical facilities, and STIGMA, neither the husband, first or the second wife’s hiv status is known BEFORE THE new UNION is commenced. What happens from here is a matter of between life and death for many less informed polygamous families. Nevertheless, HIV DOES NOT KILL PEOPLE ANYMORE, but #IGNORANCE, #STIGMA AND #SYSTEMIC-DISCRIMINATION DOES! #MAASAI-MEN-AGAINST-FGM
Every Maasai cricket warrior is an amplified firewall that stands between their sisters, the neighbours’ girl and FGM.
