HIV ‘Hyenas’ Sexually Cleansing Malawi Virgins


A HIV-infected man in a remote African village has told of how he was hired as a “hyena” to “sexually cleanse” young girls – a practice that is tradition to southern Malawi.

Traditionally, the service of a hyena is used in parts of southern Malawi to have intercourse with a woman after her husband dies, before she can bury him.

But in the Nsanje district, the BBC has revealed the ritual is being used on teenage girls, after their first menstruation.

The girls, in one of the poorest countries in the world, are commonly 12 years old when they are forced to have intercourse with the hyena over a three-day period to mark their transition into womanhood.

The girls are often then pushed into arranged marriages afterwards.
