I AM A BLOOD BORN CHILD OF THE MAASAI COMMUNITY IN KENYA.I was born on 3/5/ 1979 in a small remote and dusty village of Ewuaso Kedong, in Kajiado district in Kenya .
I was brought up and cared by my parents with herbal milk, animal fat and meat the normal meal for Maasai children .
I grew up in a healthy way and I was inducted into Maasai manhood through herding my father's cattle.
I later enrolled in school. I went to school after an order by the area chief that all young Maasai children should be under the tree for their baby class lesson.
My parents couldn't see the benefit of going to school and were afraid that I would loose my identity as a Maasai.
My parents said it is posible to hold a book in one hand and a spear in another hand to always be ready to face a troubled world.Every young maasai boy yearn to go for cattle raids and even go for LION hurnting to be a HERO ,but to me life was different since in the beginning because of the man who forced my parents for me to be in school.
John is married to Mercy and they have three children, Victor, Caleb and Joy.
