East Africa: KENYA 1
(MOE zus [may YOU key] may ACE say)
Moses tells us his middle name in his episode.
Moses is in Class 8 in a primary school. His father works as a contractor and has his own family village (manyatta) of 40 dwellings. His mother is a businesswoman who owns a small shop. When Moses is not at school, he stays with his extended family at his fathers manyatta. Moses explains that Maasai men often have many wives and children but he does not say if his father is polygamous.
Moses likes school, especially Math, and English. In the future, he wants to be a doctor and serve his people. He enjoys practicing the Maasai sports, the Maasai jumping dance, listening to his grandfather tell traditional stories, and playing soccer in his free time. He is fond of his little sister who is serious.
Moses takes us on a visit to the manyatta to see some of Maasai traditional life. He talks about his upcoming initiation ceremony and mentions his impending circumcision.
