Masai justice

December 21, 2009

Olengunin, the husband of La Chica’s best friend Namnyak, is a village chief of a sub-village of Longido.  The day La Chica arrived for a visit Olengunin was carrying out his duties to settle a dispute between two Masai men, which had resulted in one of them using his panga (foot long knife) to slash his opponent four times in the head.  The injured man survived, and the perpetrator had to give him a sheep as compensation for the pain and suffering he had caused the injured man.
