Every year in western Kenya, for a month all schools are closed. This is due to a curious and painful rite that is practiced there. This is circumcision, a painful transition from adolescent to adult world. According to the customs, so that the young man is considered an adult, it must undergo the painful rite of circumcision.
But it is not undergoing this painful practice. The most important thing is not to show you are sore. Their faces should not show pain or suffering at any time. Puffff !!! ... horrible.
