Thank you Daniela! It is true that in the past Sukuma young men had to kill a lion to gain prestige. However, to date the need for wealth makes the greatest motivation out of which Sukuma acquire and retain prestige. Most of Sukumas say to acquire wealth from crop cultivation and increasing cattle herds.
