(NYT40) NDANGA, Malawi -- May 10, 2005 -- MALAWI-AIDS-3 -- Village headman Evance Joseph Fundi with his three sons outside his home in Ndanga, Malawi, on Jan. 26, 2005. Fundi is a firm believer in the tradition known as sexual cleansing: sex between a widow and one of her husband's relatives or an appointed cleanser, to break the bond with his spirit and, it is said, save her and the rest of the village from insanity or disease.
