There is a well-known African tribe called the Masai who have managed to retain a lot of their culture in spite of various pressures to abandon them like many other African tribes have.
Some of the well-hidden secrets of this warrior tribe found in East Africa has attracted hoards of white women tourists who go to Africa with only one mission in mind, and that is to find a real Masai warrior for a companion.
And even as authorities in these poor African countries begin to take note of this morally disturbing development the practice is still thriving, as these governments are very reluctant to do anything that would interfere with their precious tourism cash cow.
But even more shockingly disturbing is the trend where women who manage to accomplish this weird objective are hooked for life and some have even left their families, husbands and financial security, to settle for life with their new-found penniless Masai lovers.
What is it about this primitive African tribe that is so irresistible to those who have discovered it? Is it linked to some sort of voodoo practice as some people say?
Actually the answer is to be found in some practices and culture that the Masai tribe has retained which make this warrior tribe irresistible to those who have had any contact with them. I actually came across it all almost by accident in a well written article by an African expert on the Masai tribe. The rather fascinating information left me in numb shock.
But surely there can be no other explanation why so many women, mostly from Britain, Germany and a few other European countries are risking so much to be with the primitive Masai African tribe of East Africa. Or can there be?
