I GET TO KEEP IT!!

On Sunday, 16 Feb 2014 Kenedy Owino, NCFM’s Liaison in Kenya, reported a victory for Intactivists in Africa. Click on the picture to go to Intact Kenya’s Facebook page for more information. Mr. Owino and others have been fighting for males to keep their foreskins at the same time the United States and the Bill and Malinda Gates Foundation are pouring millions of dollars into Africa to remove as may foreskins as they can to prevent the spread of HIV. Fortunately, there is no reputable science to support such nonsense — none. Congratulations Mr. Owino to to you and your allies for this victory! Let’s hope this senseable success spreads throughout the continent.

SIAYA COUNTY SEEKS TO ABORT THE FORCED “CUT” LAW AT EMBRYONIC STAGE.

The proposed bill to make male circumcision mandatory to both newly born male babies and men in Siaya County will not see a single ray of light at the end of the day, a Siaya County legislator has said.The bill will continue to gather mosses and not the assembly hearings.

Speaking at the Mwalimu Guest House in Siaya town on Friday when Intact Kenya paid him a courtesy call ,Honourable Leonard Otieno Oriaro,the Ward Representative for Central Alego ward in Siaya county said that the bill must be aborted at conception since it will violate the right to genital integrity of men and male babies born within Siaya county.

According to Hon. Oriaro,some of the Luo cultural practices can more effectively help contain the spread of HIV/AIDS in the county than the current trend of promoting mass male circumcision which will make youths to be reckless in their sexual behaviours.He gave an incidence of delayed sexual activity or remarriage for a widow which could last for as long as two years after the burial of her deceased husband.

Hon.Leonard Oriaro praised the initiative Intact Kenya is taking to save male babies and men in Siaya county,the whole of Kenya and Africa from the rite.He said he will organise a forum to popularise Intact Kenya and make it a fully recognised movement.

In attendance were three other MCAs. One kept repeating at close intervals that he won’t be circumcised,reinforcing Hon. Oriaro’s stand that young children cannot make informed decisions and parental consent should also not be sought because it is their bodies and choices are theirs to make only as maturely grown adults of 18 years or over.

At one point,Hon. Oriaro sorrowfully narrated to me how most of his male primary schoolmates have succumbed to HIV/AIDS just because they thought that circumcision would protect them from the epidemic.Being that the majority of them were from the neighbouring Luhya ethnic group,they were circumcised as a rite of passage to initiate them from childhood to adulthood.

This is not the first time the MCA has spoken out against the mass mutilation of boys.His rejoinder to the proposed bill appeared in a local newspaper,The DAILY NATION, a day after the news of the male cut law was reported in the local media.

Hon. Oriaro is an aggressive,intelligent politician who has initiated many development projects in and out of his Central Alego Ward.That explains why he worn the seat by lanslide.

FORCED CIRCUMCISION IS GENITAL MUTILATION.

IN THE US IT’S A CRIME CIRCUMCISION OF FEMALES IS A FELONY.

  1. […] In 2013, NCFM Liaison in Kenya Kennedy Owino successfully blocked mandatory circumcision legislation in Siaya County, Kenya. The legislation would have required the mandatory circumcision of all males in the county, newborns to adults. http://ncfm.org/2014/02/news/mens-health/ncfm-kenya-liaison-reports-that-siaya-county-dodged-a-manda… […]
