It also has socioeconomic effects on the family of the initiates since it involves spending a lot of money. The communities that practice it derive a lot of joy in this practice, however due to the widespread of HIV and AIDS they are also aware that there are risks associated with it as a result of sharing one knife on more than one initiate.
