A woman in Kenya who has just lost her husband is immediately faced with a terrible choice: To be “cleansed” or not.
A widow in Kenya is generally considered to be at best cursed and at worst a witch. “Cleansing” supposedly frees them from evil magic, or at least from their neighbors’ suspicion and vitriol.
