Initiation ritual of boys in Malawi

We travel along the shores of Lake Nyasa as we reach Blantyre in the country of Malawi. You may be surprised at such a Scottish sounding place name deep in the heart of Africa. The reason is simple, the town was named after the Scottish birthplace of renowned explorer David Livingstone who was instrumental in the growth of the town.
