Supporters of President Mwai Kibaki, whose Kikuyu tribe circumcises its men, clashed with supporters of opposition leader Raila Odinga, who is Luo, a tribe that does not circumcise. The rite took on political significance, with Odinga's rivals publicly saying he wasn't a complete man. Many Luo were forcibly circumcised in the violence.
THIS IS ALARMING!

So, the Kikuyu tribe leaders got their ego bruised and retaliated with violence.

This is not a newsweek article but an AP story that went out a few weeks ago! Newsweek only reprinted it.
