English term or phrase: mugiro
Il s'agit d'un texte sur le cancer en Afrique, et je ne vois pas le sens de ce mot ?? De même, le sens de la partie "the dying were removed outside the compound" m'achappe. Merci pour vos lumières !!

In addition, traditional healers work with local medicines extracted from trees and plants, and claim to cure diseases, that hospital medicine cannot cure.
In the past, belief in mugiro determined traditional Meru practices. To bring mugiro, a form of tribal uncleanness and a source of disease, into the community threatened clan life and required a ceremony of purification. Death was the most potent form of mugiro, so the dying were removed outside the compound, to avoid ritual uncleanness. A relative made a shelter from the sun, and lit a fire at night to ward off hyenas

Explanation:
je pense qu'il faut garder mugiro.

Pour le reste :
"les mourants furent sortis de l'enceinte [de l'hôpital ou autre lieu]"
Quand j'étais en Ethiopie, c'est comme cela que l'on appelait l'enceinte de l'hôpital où j'ai séjourné (qui était constitués de quelques barraques !) d'Addis Abeba.
