A hyena named Eric

BBC World Service about an hour ago.

In the south of Malawi it is the custom for parents, when a girl reaches menarche, to hire a man to deflower her.

It is a coming of age ritual.

Men who do this for hire are called hyenas.

Condoms can never be used for this ceremonial sex event.

Eric is a hyena who is HIV positive.

He was apparently diagnosed 4 years ago and has not left off his profession.

Nor does he tell parents or the girls.
