Saturday, 11 March 2017: Around 2000 men in Gauteng, KZN, Mpumpalanga and the North West are being medically circumcised as part of #ZwakalaSkeem campaign. Among them is Kagiso Modupe (33), well-known South African soapie star and Brothers for Life ambassador, who launched a nation-wide campaign recently to mobilise men to circumcise regardless of their age or health status.
Circumcision is proven to reduce the risk of getting infected by HIV and other sexually transmitted infections and to reduce risk for cervical, anal and prostate cancer. It has benefits for both men and women.
Dr Khumbulani Moyo, Medical Male Circumcision Manager at the USAID-funded Voluntary Male Medical Circumcision consortium consisting of partners Right to Care, CHAPS and MatCH says: “Kagiso has helped open a conversation that many men and their partners find difficult to talk about. He has taken the taboo out of the conversation. He also provided men and their partners with accurate information so they could make an informed decision.”
“Some men raise the issue of traditional over medical circumcision. It is a choice,” explains Dr Moyo. “Medical male circumcisions can take place in a traditional context where it marks the transition from boy to man. The point is to incorporate the medical procedure regardless of religious or cultural background, which is very important from a healthcare perspective.”
There was a family fun day at the clinic with musical performances from local groups, competitions, DJS and an interactive question and answer session about circumcision.
