  6. .. Don’t mock this guy, I’m not supporting this guy and the practice but to be honest enough this primitive tradition of hyena practices are most parts of our country, it’s common, we grew up with full knowledge of this. try to find a common solution to save our innocent young girls from this evil! government must sit down with tradional chiefs, tradional leaders, churches and all necessary groups to end this madness. thanks to this guy for opening a can of worms, he don’t deserve a jail@all……zikomo….
