It additionally raised vexing questions on the colonial judge's acquittal of Oldus Elishira, whereas the Maasai who must have been chuffed with that call determined to take it upon themselves to mete out a suitable punishment to Elshira rather than overall acquittal, and to compensate Mrs. Stuchbery for the demise of her husband via giving her a few heads of cattle.
