Mkpuluoma - Good Seed

The moon was full and bright. The stars glittered, with the cool night breeze making it sensational night. Ofe uha and egusi aromas sifted through night. Mkpuluoma was nervous and excited, the long awaited Eke market day was here. Nnedi painted her legs with the popular uli, drawing beautiful patterns on her hands and legs respectively. Papa bought her choral beads. It was the day Iheoma was coming to perform the Igba Nkwu rituals, the pride of every woman.

Say No to Rape

Here in Malawi, we have some traditional beliefs that violate women's rights. It is really okay to respect beliefs we have in our societies, but not all traditions are meant to be followed. How can it be a tradition for girls to be made to have sex with a paid sex worker known as a "Hyena" once they reach puberty?
