He said it’s their choice, adding that according to their culture followers are required to remain natural.
my kids do not have dreadlocks because it’s their choice. one is 17, 9, 10 and 2. THis is because it’s their right to choose. but their hair is all natural

He maintained saying:
the culture is strict. we are against crime; we try to share what we have. we are also careful in what we eat because we are destroying the temple. we eat what is good for human consumption
